Carbon materials for solar fuel production

Several carbon materials have been proposed as low-cost and metal-free catalysts for photo- and electrochemical production of fuels. We are applying different spectroscopy techniques to identify possible active sites and unravel electronic processes leading to the production of solar fuels. We are particularly focusing on two main topics:
