Our group is focussed on the rational design of heterogeneous photocatalysts based on earth-abundant, inexpensive and stable materials for applications in sustainable chemistry and H₂ generation. Our interests range from developing fundamental knowledge about the structure-activity relationship to materials design for potential large-scale applications.
