Research topic: Metal-organic frameworks as energy conversion materials

A central cornerstone in addressing current energy requirements is large-scale efficient conversion of solar energy to electricity and simultaneously processing the abundant greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into useful fuels. Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are a promising compound class offering high potential for light-induced electronic excitation and charge separation, coupled with charge transport and chemical reactivity. My doctoral research aims to understand and optimize these properties towards carbon dioxide conversion in artificial photosynthesis. This will be targeted by immobilizing photosystem components in a MOF scaffold and subsequent rational design of an efficient photocatalytic MOF.
