Development of new heterogeneous catalysts for release/absorption of hydrogen in the cycle carbon dioxide/carbonate/formic acid

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The aim of the project is using formic acid (or formates) for hydrogen production with the development of heterogeneous catalysts for the whole cycle carbon dioxide/cabonate/formic acid. The catalysts under investigation are supported colloidal nanocrystals based on microcrystal structure assembly mediated by organic molecules under microwave irradiation. Through a combinatorial approach, the work is finalized to the continuous flow degradation of formic acid into H2 and CO2 for fuel-cell feeding

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
