Triads for solar H2O oxidation catalysis

Last Updated: 11/22/2012

TiO2-Dye-POM WOC Triads

                       

Student working on this project: Jordan Sumliner

 A key challenge for molecular catalysts is developing immobilization strategies allowing their incorporation into electrodes and solar fuel producing devices. Our goals are to:

(1) Design and synthesize TiO2-Dye-POM triads based on multifunctional Ru-polypyridyl dyes and our WOCs

(2) Investigate the dependence of photo-induced electron transfer and long distance charge separation in these systems on the electronic/geometric structure of the dye and WOC

(3) Study and optimize the performance of the triads with respect to splitting H2O into H2 and O2 using visible light.
