SOLARKITE: Efficient production of solar fuels through the development of new perovskites with redox capacity for thermochemical splitting of CO2 and H2O

Project financed by the Ramón Areces Foundation in the framework of the call XVII National Competition for awarding grants to Research in Life Sciences and Matter 2014

The overall objective of this project is the development of multifunctional redox systems based on transition metal perovskites and lanthanides, primarily to allow efficient storage of solar energy in thermochemical cycles for hydrogen production and / or synthesis gas.
