Valorization of small molecules
The production of fuels and chemicals from small and abundant molecules such as CO2, N2, H2O, or CH4 powered by renewable energy may enable a distributed sustainable scheme, in contrast to the centralized and fossil-based one currently in place. The implementation of the electrochemical CO(2) reduction reaction (eCO(2)RR) demands better energy efficiency from more advanced electrocatalysts. A step behind in terms of development, ammonia electro-synthesis from N2 is an emerging field that attracts considerable attention for the on-site production of fertilizers. With this in mind, I work on the discovery and development of novel materials based on transition metals, with special interest in finding activity correlations helping me find optimized catalysts. My work spans from understanding these complex systems using radically new approaches such as microfabrication to electrode scale up for engineering artificial leaves.
