Research Topics & Interests

 

The group has established a highly interdisciplinary activity on the study of bio-inspired catalysis, molecular materials and functional hybrid architectures.

Quantasome Approach

Bio-inspired from the architectures discovered in photosystems II and I, the quantasome approach identifies the minimal photosynthetic unit responsible for ‘quantum’ solar energy conversion, integrating a self-assembled light-harvesting antenna in combination with catalytic cofactors.
