Talented Researcher Support Programme – GenT Plan             


PHOTON UPCONVERSION REDOX CATALYSIS (PURECAT)

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.
