The January, 2020 issue of MRS Bulletin examines the generation and relaxation of hot electrons in typical nanoparticle systems and the flow of hot electrons across the surfaces of the nanoparticles. The promise of hot-electron chemistry (and the complementary hot-hole chemistry) is supported by its application in many important reactions, including CO2 reduction, water splitting, hydrogenation, and coupling reactions, highlighting its great potential in achieving high energy-conversion efficiency and product selectivity.
This webinar featured three talks from experts in the field. A Q&A session was held with each speaker at the conclusion of their talks.
Nanodiode-based hot electrons: Influence on surface chemistry amd catalytic reactions Jeong Young Park, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology
Plasmonic Metal–Semiconductor Heterostructures for Hot-Electron-Driven Photochemistry Jiawei Huang, University of Florida
Hot-Carrier Dynamics in Catalysis Jonathan Foley, William Paterson University
