Research Area in Energy:

Electrochemical Hydrogen and Oxygen Production:

Our research focusses on the self-assembly of metal complexes that can be used for constructing inorganic materials for the electrochemical oxidation/reduction of small molecules relevant for producing value added chemicals or fuel cell technologies.

Coupled to solar energy production, these new technologies provide powerful new methods for tackling fundamental challenges in Energy Storage and Conversion.
