Bioinspired strategies for solar driven generation of fuel and feedstocks

Making energy and chemical resources sustainable, carbon neutral and non-toxic on a global scale is a huge challenge, that we must necessarily realize to mitigate anthropogenic pollution and climate change. The development of catalysts to produce energy storing molecules and/or chemical feedstocks that meet the above requirements would represent a large step in the right direction.

Research in the Glover group is aimed at developing new light activated catalyst systems to produce solar fuels and chemical feedstocks. We are further interested in understanding catalysis at the mechanistic level to inform on how best to make new systems more robust and efficient.
