NordCO2 PhD student Narges Atrak has worked together with Ebrahim Tayyebi under the supervision of Prof. Egill Skúlasson to study the stability of intermediates in CO2 reduction reaction and the competing hydrogen evolution reaction using DFT calculations. Congratulations to all authors! Title: Effect of co-adsorbed water on electrochemical CO2 reduction reaction on transition …
NordCO2 PI Mårten S. G. Ahlquist and collaborators have explored the mechanism behind the photo carboxylation of C(sp3)-H bonds in benzylic substrates using DFT calculations. To use their own words, “The present study sheds light on the detailed functions of the photo-catalyst and transition-metal catalyst in the carboxylation reactions, and the interactions …
NordCO2 PIs Kathrin Hopmann and Troels Skrydstrup will be participating (with their research groups!) in the Novo Nordisk Foundation Research Center along five other institutions. The centre, based at Aarhus University, is focused on developing technologies for the capture, storage and recycling of CO2. The grant amount is about 850 million NOK (84.7 million €).
