 Project objective

The oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is the key reaction to enable the storage of solar energy in the form of hydrogen fuel through water splitting. Efficient, Earth-abundant, and robust OER catalysts are required for a large-scale and cost-effective production of solar hydrogen. While OER catalysts based on metal oxides exhibit promising activity and stability, their rational design and developments are challenging due to the heterogeneous nature of the catalysts. Here I propose a project to (i) understand OER on metal oxides at the molecular level and engineer catalytic sites at the atomic scale; (ii) develop and apply practical OER catalysts for high-efficiency water splitting in electrochemical and photoelectrochemical devices. The first general objective will be obtained by using 2-dimensional metal oxide nanosheets as a platform to probe the intrinsic activity and active sites of metal oxide OER catalysts, as well as by developing sub-nanocluster and single-atom metal oxide OER catalysis. The second general objective will be obtained by establishing new and better synthetic methods, developing new classes of catalysts, and applying catalysts in innovative water splitting devices. The project employs methodologies from many different disciplines in chemistry and materials science. Synthesis is the starting point and the backbone of the project, and the synthetic efforts are complemented and valorised by state-of-the-art characterization and catalytic tests. The project will not only yield significant fundamental insights and knowledge in heterogeneous OER catalysis, but also produce functional and economically viable catalysts for solar fuel production.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "FANOEC" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
