Electrocatalytic proton and CO2 reduction: Metal based fused diporphyrins with proton relays for efficient catalysis

Project description

Efficient electrocatalysts based on diporphyrin complexes

Electrocatalysts are critical for increasing the selectivity and rate of a chemical reaction since they lower the energy barrier for the reaction to occur. Funded under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the MC-FMP-ECAT project plans to use metal-based fused diporphyrins as electrocatalyst materials for hydrogen evolution reactions and carbon dioxide reduction. The project's activities will be geared towards synthesising metal complexes of free-base monoporphyrin derivatives bearing hydrophilic groups at the periphery and producing fused diporphyrins from respective monoporphyrin derivatives. The study aims to open up new avenues for the development of more efficient and cost-effective catalysts.
