Photo-Cat Symposium 2021

20 september 2021 13:00 – 22 september 2021 17:00
Categorie: KVCV Centraal


Photocatalysis represents a unique class of chemical transformations. It utilizes the energy delivered by light and drives reactions that are difficult, sometimes even impossible, to carry out in dark. When used for thermodynamically uphill reactions such as photosynthesis, photocatalysis promises a sustainable solution to large scale solar energy storage. Based on this, novel reactions and photocatalysts have been discovered recently. This symposium will highlight all the recent advances in the domain of photocatalysis and their applications towards the synthesis of complex molecules to fuel generations.

This symposium is organised by the Royal Flemish Chemical Society (KVCV) and the Department of Chemistry of the University of Antwerp.

We look forward to welcoming you virtually!

Prof. Pegie Cool and Prof. Shoubhik Das
