Plasmonic Ru nanocatalyst
We are very proud of our cover feature and article in the latest issue of ChemCatChem. Within the Interreg project LUMEN TNO, IMEC, Hasselt University and Zuyd University of Applied Sciences have developed a plasmonic Ru nanocatalyst for the sunlight-powered conversion of carbon dioxide and green hydrogen to methane, and demonstrated that a collective photothermal effect plays a key role in this process.
We gratefully acknowledge financial support from the European Fund for Regional Development through the cross‐border collaborative Interreg V program Flanders‐The Netherlands, the Belgian province of Limburg and the Dutch Ministry of Economic affairs and provinces of Limburg and Noord‐Brabant. Furthermore, we thank Marcel Verheijen for the high quality electron microscopy images.
