Congrats to our postdoc Subhabrata Mukhopadhyay on the new publication in Angewandte Chemie!

The work presents the utilization of a MOF as a porous membrane assembled on top of a solid CO2 reduction electrocatalyst. The MOF-membrane tunes the chemical environment around the catalytically active site and stabilizes the catalytic intermediates via secondary-sphere interactions, leading to improved catalytic activity and product selectivity.
