"Development of solar-activated photocatalysts for hydrogen fuel generation" jeudi 15 septembre 2016

"Development of solar-activated photocatalysts for hydrogen fuel generation"jeudi 15 septembre 2016 à 16 h salle du Conseil à l'UFR (32-42:101)

Among renewable energy resources, solar energy is by far the largest usable resource, providing more energy to the Earth in one hour than all of the energy consumed by humans in a year. If solar energy is to be a major primary energy source, it must be captured, converted, and stored. The most attractive method of solar energy storage is in the form of chemical bonds of an energy carrier, such as hydrogen. 
In this seminar we will discuss the development of a solar-activated photocatalysts for hydrogen generation by splitting water to hydrogen and oxygen. We will present the process of synthesizing nanostructured, solar-activated photocatalysts (GaN:ZnO) immobilized on support-structured materials with high electron mobility for efficient solar hydrogen generation.
