Currently developing efficient systems for photocatalytic CO2 reduction as a PhD student. I am in constant learning, compromised with the environment, capable of managing any type of project. I consider myself as an active person, efficiently handling a lot of responsibilities, always willing to help, with the final purpose of generating knowledge and promote its development.

The use of heteroleptic copper (I) photosensitizers has been studied thoroughly and applied in proton photocatalytic reduction,1 furthermore, photosensitizer-titanium dioxide composites have shown a positive outcome for this transformation.2 Application of PS-TiO2 composites has shown positive results reducing amounts of catalyst and photosensitizer achieving higher TON values than the homogeneous systems. An ongoing collaboration with Greifswald INP focuses on coverage of these heterogeneous materials using plasma techniques.

Development of an artificial metalloenzyme based on iron cyclopentadienone complexes is currently in progress. Collaboration with Greifswald University regarding this topic is ongoing. Maleimide moiety was incorporated to the iron complex for further binding to the enzyme; resulting artificial metalloenzyme will be tested in photocatalytic CO2 reduction.

Who are we?

We are a good dozen young researchers and their supervisors and we develop novel catalysts and reactions for a sustainable, green chemistry. In doing so, we combine different approaches from our fields: Chemistry, Biochemistry and Protein Engineering as well as Plasma Physics.

Leibniz Association

This Campus is supported by the Leibniz Association (WGL) and the federal state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.
