CHOCO: Catalysts for Homogeneous Conversion of CO2
The CHOCO research team is combining computational and experimental approaches to develop novel and selective catalysts for chemical conversion of small molecules such as H2 and CO2 . The main focus is on homogeneous catalysis.
The CHOCO team is located at the Dept. of Chemistry at UiT The Artic University of Tromsø. The CHOCO project leader is Assoc. Prof. Kathrin H. Hopmann. Co-leader of the project team is Assoc. Prof. Annette Bayer from the organic chemistry group at UiT.
We lead a portfolio of externally funded research projects (see also Funding), for more information you can see the respective pages/websites:
- Nordic Consortium for CO2 Conversion – NordCO2 (NordForsk Hub)
- Cooperation towards a sustainable chemical industry – CO2PERATE (H2020 ITN)
- Selective CO2 conversion via chiral CO2 trapping – CATCHME (RCN project)
