Project description

The aim of this research proposal is to synthesize novel N-heterocyclic Covalent Organic Frameworks and use them as such (metal free) or as host for the embedding of catalytically active species. The obtained materials will be evaluated as heterogeneous catalysts in the selective oxidation and CO2 electrochemical reduction reactions.
