New composite materials for high temperature water splitting and synthetic fuel production by solar thermochemical conversion

Project Details


In this project we propose a novel concept material for high temperature H2O/CO2 splitting based on a porous ceramic composite comprised of high-temperature ceramics and cerium oxide in its highly doped form. In the composite, the low diffusivity at the refractory component inhibits the mass diffusion mechanisms in the catalytic component (doped-ceria), thus preserving the microstructure from the detrimental densification effects.
