[Time changed] Seminar: "Conjugated polymers as photocatalysts for solar fuels generation" by Dr. Sebastian Sprick, University of Strathclyde
Figure 1: Approach used in the design and synthesis of polymer photocatalysts.
We have used a range of different techniques that helped us to gain understanding of the properties that are important for the materials performance, including transient absorption spectroscopy.3-5 Sacrificial water oxidation,6 non-sacrificial overall water splitting,7,8 and carbon dioxide reduction, were also studied which showcases the potential of these materials for the future.
