    Project Details

    Description

    People are currently still over reliant on fossil fuels for energy production and unfortunately this leads to increased greenhouse gases and their detrimental climate effect. This project aims to remove CO2 from the atmosphere as part of a reaction to produce a carbon-neutral solar fuel. To realise this, the project will develop novel wireless sustainable nanoreactors, which can be scaled to a system working in an ambient environment for high-yield production. The expected outcomes are to synthesise nanoflowers composed of 2D functional nanoleaves, which will be fabricated into a flexible large-area CO2-to-solar fuel system. This project will also expand knowledge in heterojunctions, surface chemistry and nanomanufacturing of 2D materials.
