Brief description, advantages, further prospects for application.

The study is devoted to the development of specialized catalysts for the photochemical conversion of greenhouse gases, in particular, carbon dioxide into synthetic fuel using solar energy.

Models of solar reactors for converting CO2 into carbohydrate fuel with a functionalized nanoporous matrix of artificial Ni/CeO2 sheets were created.

The developed systems undergo practical testing at IREC, Catalonia.
