Metal graphdiyne towards electrochemical water splitting

Project description

Novel carbon-based electrocatalysts for enhancing efficiency of clean hydrogen production

Electrochemical water splitting is a sustainable and green strategy for hydrogen production. However, the water splitting reactions – hydrogen evolution reaction and oxygen evolution reaction – are tightly limited in efficiency by their large overpotentials. Nowadays, catalysts play a fundamental role in industrial chemical reactions, traditionally relying on inorganic materials. With the support of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the CarbonChem project aims at creating a novel porous organic framework with metal sites, based on a new 2D conductive carbon compound (graphdiyne), as a single-atom catalyst to enhance the efficiency of electrochemical water splitting and support the hydrogen industry.
