“Kroese-Duijsters” symposium on water splitting, oxygen reduction and hydrogen evolution by heterogeneous, inorganic and biological electro(photo)catalysis
Water splitting, oxygen reduction and hydrogen evolution by heterogeneous, inorganic and biological electro(photo)catalysis
Reaction mechanisms, rate limiting steps and selectivity
A transition to a sustainable and renewable energy economy is urgently required and electro(photo)catalysis will provide a key role. Heterogeneous, inorganic and biological catalysts each display important advantages, but also come with challenges. In spite of the complexity of these vastly different electrocatalytic systems, there is a tantalising prospect that these disciplines can complement each other. In this one-day symposium, electrochemist from the different disciplines are brought together to present and discuss the latest progress, with a special emphasis on challenges that remain in terms of selectivity, rate limiting steps and our understanding of reaction mechanisms.
