Outline

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is a promising energy carrier for electricity generation because it is easy to transport and exhibits an output potential similar to a hydrogen-oxygen fuel cell. This project aims at the design of new photocatalysts that produce H2O2 from earth-abundant water and molecular oxygen as resourses under sunlight irradiation. We will create innovative technologies for H2O2 synthesis through the band engineering and the precise synthesis of organic semiconductor or organic/inoganic hybrid semiconductor photocatalysts.
