Project Details

Project Description

In this project, rhodium(II) clusters with structural similarities to the surface of common minerals and emneable for NMR study, will be used to follow adsorption phinomena ocuring at minral interfaces and on nonostructrured oxides commonly used in devices, such as sensors and dye sensitized solar cells. Our results will be fed into computer simulations that aim to provide a molecular understanding of interfacial processes.
