Goal: understanding the catalytic properties of a new class of monophasic catalysers, active both towards oxygen reduction and evolution reactions, with potential applications in metal-air rechargeable batteries.

Specific activity in Udine: numerical simulations, using DFT methods, of the structural, electronic, spectroscopic properties of M-tetrapyrydil-porphirins (M=Co, Mn) deposited on graphene, linked by other M atoms into a self-assembling 2D metal-organic framework. Study of the interactions with oxygen and water, simulation of oxygen evolution and reduction process and of their barriers.
