Carbon Dioxide Emissions
Reduced By Photochemical Recycling To Useful Chemicals
Starting in October 2010, Dr. Jennifer Strunk will lead a new junior research group in the Laboratory of Industrial Chemistry lead by Prof. Dr. Martin Muhler with a 5-year, 1.18 million Euro research grant from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Their research will target the photocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide to produce useful building block chemicals of the chemical industry. Dr. Strunk, who has just returned from her postdoctoral research at the University of California, Berkeley, is looking forward to contributing to the research activity at her Alma Mater. The funding of the junior research group originates from a successful application to the Call for Proposals "Technologien für Nachhaltigkeit und Klimaschutz - Chemische Prozesse und stoffliche Nutzung von CO2" (Technologies for Sustainability and Climate Preservation - Chemical Processes and Molecular Conversion of CO2") of the BMBF.
