New coating material for semiconductors - one step closer to the goal of producing fuel from sunlight


Hydrogen gas and methanol are currently produced mainly from fossil sources, such as oil or natural gas. A more environmentally and climate-friendly alternative is to produce these substances from water and carbon dioxide using sustainable electricity. Prof. Sascha Ott and co-workers at Synthetic Molecular Chemistry have now developed a new material that is needed in the process - by using sunlight as a complement to electricity. The study is published in the journal Nature Communications.

Sascha Ott says that "We’ve moved a step closer to our goal of producing the fuel of the future from sunlight".
