Towards efficient low-temperature CO2 electrolysis

In what way can the chemical properties of cobalt porphyrines be adjusted to optimize their selectivity and activity when using them for the electrochemical conversion of CO2 to methane and methanol?

The researchers will immobilize modified cobalt porphyrines on graphite electrodes and use them for the electrochemical conversion of CO2 to methane and methanol. The group of Marc Koper has recently discovered that such electrodes are active in the electrocatalytic reduction of CO2 to methane, and in collaboration with the group of Lies Bouwman, the researchers will adjust the chemical properties of these porphyrines to optimize the selectivity and activity. The project will also be supported by detailed quantum-chemical calculations.
