Welcome to the Molecular Catalysis group in the School of Chemistry at University of Lincoln. We work at the interface of molecules and materials with primary focus on developing new catalysts for renewable energy applications and sustainable chemistry. Our research covers a broad range of energy-related topics including carbon dixodie reduction, water splitting, C-H activation and nitrogen activation using solar energy or renewable electricity
Molecular catalysts for solar-fuels and artificial photosynthesis
Catalyst immobilizationa and surface chemistry
Porous polymers, metal-organic frameworks and porous thin-films
Homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis
Hybrid photocatalysts and molecular photoelectrodes
CO2 reduction, H2 evolution, C-H functionalization, N2 activation
