Welcome to the DIACAT Project Website!
DIACAT is a FET open research project funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.
The project aims to develop a completely new technology for the direct photocatalytic conversion of CO2 into fine chemicals and fuels using visible light.
The approach utilises the unique characteristics of man-made diamond, now widely available at low economic cost, to generate solvated electrons upon light irradiation in solutions (e.g. in water and ionic liquids).
On the following pages, you find detailed information about the work that is done in the project, the people and institutions that are involved, the challenges in the development of a new technology based on tailor-made diamond materials and a regular update on the dissemination activities during the project lifetime.
