Research question

This project will focus on synthesizing and fundamentally investigate new Sn-based material with Cu doping and molecular modification to provide efficient electrocatalysts to convert CO2 into valuable chemicals with high selectivity. We will also tackle the possibility of finding efficient catalysts to produce C2 and C2+ products.  

Sustainability aspect

The project is highly relevant to the 7th goal of the Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs): Affordable and clean energy.
