After a long Corona period, we finally gathered for some good food and drinks.
Congratulations to Idan for receiving the prestigious Krill Prize for excellence in scientific research!
Idan won the award for the development of innovative conductive materials such as metal-organic frames and their use for capturing and storing solar energy, coating electrodes, and accelerating chemical reactions.
Congrats our Undergraduate Student Shachar Bnemeen Keren on receiving the department head prize.
Congrats to our PhD student Itamar Liberman on receiving the Dean prize for excellent M.Sc. Students.
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.
