MOF2H2's first workshop: register here!

Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOF) are used in a wide range of applications, from gas storage, purification and separation to catalysis and sensing. In the frame of green hydrogen production, these MOFs can be used as efficient and scalable photocatalytic systems for overall water splitting using sunlight irradiation. This workshop aims to gathering the academic material chemistry communities, actively working on the synthesis, characterization and photoactivity of these MOFs.

This event is organised by a consortium of international partners as part of the Horizon Project MOF2H2. The MOF2H2 project, standing for “Metal-Organic Frameworks for Hydrogen production by photocatalytic overall water splitting”, aims at developing a new ground-breaking solution to produce Green Hydrogen from sunlight, understanding that low carbon hydrogen is crucial for decarbonizing energy, transport, and carbon-intensive industries. The MOF2H2 project aims to produce it sustainably through photocatalytic water splitting, using non-noble materials as a game-changing solution.

This workshop is an opportunity to bring together the scientific community around lectures given by experts and to encourage exchanges within the community in this field. The ambition of this event is to help disseminate the latest research and prospects on MOF materials in sustainable energy applications among researchers, students and the public concerned.

This will be an occasion for the research teams, particularly the post-doctoral students, to present their studies and results on the subject through a poster session and a flash oral presentation.

This event is hosted by the Chemical Technology Joint Research Institute (Instituto de Tecnologia Quimica, ITQ) at Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV).
