[Expired] PhD thesis (Brest) : electrocatalytic reduction of CO2 and derivatives.
The objective of the PhD Thesis is to develop and explore new molecular homogenous and heterogenous catalysts for the reduction of carbon dioxide and low-weight organic derivatives. The synthesized compounds will be characterized by various spectroscopic techniques. Special emphasis will be placed on the spectroelectrochemical characterization (IR, UV-Vis-NIR) of intermediates for full understanding of the mechanisms. Immobilization of the most promising molecular catalysts onto conductive support (electrode) will be also developed to perform heterogeneous catalysis.MESR2017-Brest-ENG
