Dr Erwin Reisner

Portrait of er376

We are interested in artificial photosynthesis and solar fuels and develop novel photocatalytic systems by combining homogenous synthetic catalysts and enzymes with a light absorbing nanostructured semiconductor. A current focus lies on the sunlight-driven production of the high specific energy carrier hydrogen and the selective conversion of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide into carbon monoxide and formic acid. Our cross-disciplinary laboratory covers a wide range of disciplines, from Synthetic Molecular and Materials Chemistry to Biological Chemistry combined with Electro-, Photochemistry and Nanoscience.
