Resumo

Plasmonically-enhanced or plasmonically-mediated transformations (SPR-enhanced or SPR-mediated catalysis) represent a new frontier in heterogeneous catalysis, in which visible light is employed as a sustainable energy input to drive and control chemical reactions. Although many papers have reported on the SPR-mediated catalytic activities of Ag, Au, Cu, and bimetallic nanoparticles, only a few studies have focused on electrocatalysis and the establishment of structureperformance relationships. To address these issues, this proposed research project will focus on the synthesis of truly controlled nanomaterials based on Cu2O-Au crystals displaying controlled shapes, for generating fundamental knowledge on the understanding of how excited carries generated during the plasmon excitation of gold nanoparticles may affect charge transfer to Cu2O crystals having different shapes (cubes, cuboctahedrons, and octahedrons). The target reactions will be the electrocatalytic oxidation of water and glucose, in which Cu2O has demonstrated to be a promising catalyst for both reactions. The understanding of these interactions between particular surface facets and gold nanoparticles remains lacking and crucial for clarifying the mechanisms behind the observed plasmonic catalytic performances. Our focus is to consolidate a collaboration between the two partners to systematically prepare Cu2O-Au crystals and then investigate their plasmonic electrocatalytic performances of as function of these parameters.
