Our research on metal clusters has now advanced to the point where we are applying their extraordinary and unique properties to photo-catalysis, specifically the water splitting (into H2) and CO2 reduction (into hydrocarbon fuels) reactions.

This project is supported by SA state Government funding involving the three SA universities.

Access to the Nectar cloud infrastructure has provided the additional capacity we needed to calculate the properties of various metal clusters that we are comparing to experimental results. Over the past few months we have made several advances that will lead to several key publications and contribute to 3 PhD theses.
