Abstract

After a short introduction on the interest of solar fuels, the current state of the art and the properties of metal-organic frameworks, the talk will present some of the contribution of the Valencia group to the development of the field for hydrogen generation from water and CO2 reduction. The final part will provide some hints for future development of the field.
