Schematic illustration represents utilization of phosphorene-based materials for H2 production, and CO2 reduction into green fuels. Thus, carbon cycle via solar driven electrolysis of H2O and CO2 powered by various renewable sources closing the carbon loop.
Water splitting into Hydrogen and Oxygen
In 21st century, the major challenges facing scientific community is to search an alternatives of energy resources. The main objective of my research is to design and developed highly efficient novel catalysis for energy applications. The major thrust research areas are as follows:
Green Hydrogen Production During Water Electrolysis.
Hydrogen Fuel Cell
Machine learning approach.
CO2 Reduction into Green Fuel via Electrochemical Route
Electrochemical conversion of HMF into FDCA
Origin of Life
Photo-catalytic Hydrogen Generator
Photo-electrochemical water splitting
Water splitting consists on the H2O molecule division in H+ and combination with photo-generated electrons on the cathode and separation of O2 on the anode due to the combination of H2O and the photo-generated holes. This reaction occurs at an over potential of 1.23 V (vs Normal Hydrogen Electrode).
