General information

Leading scientist's research interests: Heterogeneous photocatalysis, new photoactive materials, solar energy transformation, photosynthesis, ecologically friendly chemistry.

Quote by the head of the laboratory:

We are interested in transforming solar energy to fuel. The nature does quite a good job in this respect, but it is necessary to increase its efficiency at least tenfold. We need to not only create materials but also to understand how to technically transform solar energy in large volumes. We should make something to blaze a trail to industrial applications.
