Catalytic activity of metal clusters on surfaces

Figure shows the HR-TEM image of the Au9 cluster deposited on a titania nanosheet. Scale bar is 0.5 nm

Honours project: Develop techniques to determine the geometric and electronic structure of size-specific clusters (e.g. Au9) deposited onto semiconductors surfaces (e.g. TiO2) and test their performance for photocatalytic water-spitting (H2 production) and CO2 reduction (hydrocarbon formation).
