To ensure a better future for all, it is crucial to exercise foresight, foster collaboration across various sectors, and reach agreements based on fair and ethical principles. Science plays a pivotal role in advancing energy conversion, offering the potential for significant scientific breakthroughs that contribute to the protection and respect of our World. Specifically, the development of solar-to-fuel devices holds promise for achieving this transition to green energy. This Ph.D. dissertation centers on the development and functionalization of 2D membranes and materials, which constitute integral components of these conversion devices. The optimization of functionalized 2D materials necessitates a comprehensive computational design approach. This involves the adoption of a multiscale computational framework for the thorough design of these materials and the precise prediction and understanding of molecular processes, encompassing molecular self-assembly, ion transport, and catalytic surface reactions.
