Talented Researcher Support Program – GenT Plan              


We have initiated an original and innovative research program to further the knowledge of the generation of reactive intermediate species through this novel combination of Vis-to-UV upconversion and a SET-initiated process and its subsequent application in Chemistry. Such pathways will develop a sustainable reaction methodology to expand the current scope of chemical transformations using visible light and organic (metal-free) dyes.

  • The project actually requires a truly multidisciplinary and integrated approach which includes catalytic chemistry, photochemistry and photophysics, chemical functionalization, high-pressure gas handling, reactor technology, and product and trace analysis.
  • Students with great initiative and motivation at whatever stage who are interested in these topics, please just email to us in order to learn more about grants/contracts opportunities in our research group.
