Solar project granted

Group of Prof. Wojciech Macyk is one of three Polish research teams involved in projects awarded in the Solar-Driven Chemistry call. The project Interfacial engineering of semiconductors for highly selective light-driven chemical transformations, investigated by Prof. Wojciech Macyk, is aimed to study the possibility of selectivity control in photo(electro)catalytic processes through engineering the semiconductor/solvent or semiconductor/gas interfaces. Photo(electro)catalytic reactions are the solar-driven processes that can be used to produce solar fuels, fine chemicals or to depollute water and air. The project will involve research teams led by Prof. Radim Beránek from Ulm University (project leader), Prof. Timo Jacob (Ulm University), and Prof. Markku Leskela (University of Helsinki).
