Focus on lithium and post-lithium (e.g. sodium) batteries. Both electrodes (e.g. intercalation-type and conversion-type materials) and electrolytes will be investigated.
WP leader: Prof. Riccardo Ruffo
Focus on the solar production of hydrogen and small carbon-based molecules from sun and nature abundant and ubiquitous feedstocks (H2O, CO2) by photocatalytic and photoelectrochemical approaches using a) new organic-based materials, b) 1D and 2D semiconductors and oxides.
WP leader: Dr. Norberto Manfredi
Focus on organic and metal-organic nanoporous materials with high surface (>4000 m2/g) to store hydrogen at more moderate pressures (100-200 bar) than those required by gas compression (700 bar).
