Outline of the Project

This project aims to develop solar photocatalytic processes for realizing highly efficient CO2 conversion, in which catalytic materials consisted of abundant elements are environmentally-friendly applied. Photoelectrodes with pn heterojunction of high quality of polycrystalline TiO2 and diamond are developed following application of ionic liquids as electrolytes. Our goal is eventually to create the fundamental technology of novel solar CO2 reduction processes.
