Projet de recherche - résumé

The CO2-TRIP project proposes to develop and use time-resolved X-ray spectroelectrochemistry to identify and study intermediate species during the electrocatalytic reduction of CO2 by iron-based porphyrins. Spectroscopic andelectrochemical tools will be used to determine the geometric and electronic structure
of transient reaction intermediates and provide unprecedented mechanistic insights. This knowledge will help designing catalysts with improved efficiency and selectivity.
