prot. 1625 ISOF_136_2015_BO Project Carbon Dioxide Reduction on Photocatalytic Nanomaterials - Bilateral project CNR-CONICET

Please note that the job is no longer active!

This project targets the preparation of new nanomaterials on which are grafted photoactive metal centers that serve as catalysts for the reduction of CO2. They are expected to work more effectively than individual metal complexes, due to the controlled accumulation of catalytic sites onto the nanomaterial. The target reduction products are CO, CH3OH, formate and CH4. The results of this project will contribute to make CO2 the next generation carbon feedstock, mitigating its deleterious effects on the Earth’s climate upon atmospheric accumulation, due to the combustion of fossil fuels.

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!
