Hydrogen: green and renewable energy sourced from sunlight and water

Analysis of the photocatalysts before and after use, particularly by electron microscopy, will provide insights in improving photocatalysis activity and longevity.

Honours project: A renewable energy project that aims to develop your skills in inorganic synthesis, light initiated reactions, gas chromatography, electron microscopy and chemical engineering.

Exploring the fundamentals of photo-induced chemical reaction mechanisms

Photocatalysis involves both electron and hole transfer, as well as molecular re-arrangement on a surface

Honours project: Use high-speed lasers to initiate a water-splitting reaction to probe products for analysis.

Catalytic activity of metal clusters on surfaces

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).
