The research activities are focused on the use of green electricity as a key for the transition to sustainability of the chemical industry. In this line, the three main axes are: 1) the use of CO2 as raw material, 2) increase materials durability and 3) reduce the energy consumption of electrochemical cells. The group has a wide experience in nanostructured materials fabrication, study of the electrochemical interfaces and the design of novel processes and reactors, considering the direct utilization of solar energy.
Main reseach lines are:
- Electrochemical synthesis of nanostructures and thin films (metals and metal oxides).
- Study of materials corrosion by electrochemical techniques.
- Design of (photo)electrochemical processes, including green hydrogen, CO2 upcyling and waste valorization.
- Cost reduction of electrolyser components.
