Professor of Energy and Sustainability

Our research

The Reisner laboratory develops new concepts and technologies for the conversion of solar energy and renewable electricity into sustainable fuels and chemicals for a circular economy. Thus, we explore chemical aspects of energy and sustainability, in particular photo- and electrocatalysis and the interface of synthetic chemistry, materials and nano-science, chemical biology and engineering. Central themes of our cross-disciplinary and collaborative approach are the development of processes for the upcycling of plastic and biomass waste as well as the use of carbon dioxide and water to produce green fuels and chemicals for a sustainable future.

More information can be found on our group website.

Keywords:  Solar fuels, solar chemicals, artificial photosynthesis, biohybrid materials, water and CO2 splitting, small molecule activation, catalysis, metalloenzymes, microbiology, biomimetic chemistry, bio-inorganic chemistry, synthetic chemistry, electrochemistry, photoelectrochemistry, materials Chemistry, nanotechnology, functional and energy materials.
