MOF2H2 Main Objective

Sustainable Hydrogen Production

The MOF2H2 project aims to understand, optimize and demonstrate the technical feasibility of sustainable, cheap heterometallic noble metal-free MOFs for visible light overall water splitting, and to develop a world record efficiency for sun-driven clean hydrogen production using MOFs as photocatalysts. The focus of the project is on developing and optimizing these MOFs as efficient and scalable photocatalytic systems for overall water splitting using sunlight irradiation.
