New perspectives in photocatalysis and near-surface chemistry:
catalysis meets plasmonics

CPLAS is £10 million programme grant funded by EPSRC and industry project partners for a six-year study to investigate light-driven energy-conversion at the nanoscale for stimulating chemical transformations. The project aims to advance a new field of research called “plasmo-catalysis”, which will take the light-harvesting capabilities of metallic nanostructures and transform this energy to control chemical reaction pathways in photocatalysis and photo-electrocatalysis. The research has the potential for wide-reaching applications in energy production, environmental clean-up & the pharmaceutical industry.
