Welcome to our website!

We are interested in chemical aspects of energy and sustainability, in particular the conversion of solar energy into renewable fuels and value-added chemicals. Thus, electro- and photocatalysis are central to our work at the interface of synthetic chemistry, materials and nano-science, chemical biology and engineering. A central theme is the study and mimicry of natural processes such as plant photosynthesis and enzymes to produce a so-called solar fuel - a sustainable fuel derived from solar energy and an effectively inexhaustible raw material....
