PHOTOGEN - PHOTOactive aerophobic hydroGels for hydrogEN generation in molecular-based photoelectrosynthetic cells

PRIN [2023-2025]


The PHOTOGEN project aims at the fabrication of a standalone photoelectrochemical (PEC) device for the overall water splitting, in which tunable molecular units, embedded in an aerophobic hydrogel, cooperatively work to absorb sunlight and exploit the photogenerated redox equivalents to perform interfacial reactions.
