Research Topic: Immobilisation of Photocatalytic Reaction Systems in Metal-Organic Frameworks

In order to optimize the catalytic performance concerning carbon dioxide reduction and artificial photosynthesis in MOFs, many contributing factors need to be investigated. For example, the type of photoactive moiety, its environment, coordination sphere and anchoring method in the framework. This all could lead to a better understanding of energy transfer mechanisms as well as subsequent chemical energy conversion processes. Possible photosystems could consist of a photocatalytic active carbon dioxide reducing species as well as a light harvesting photosensitizer, either in form of a complex or an organic dye.
