Rice “antenna-reactor” plasmonic catalysts can deliver increased energy savings & efficiency in catalysis https://t.co/h6OQCV15rG

Rice team develops “antenna-reactor” plasmonic catalysts for increased energy savings and efficiency in catalytic processes 24 July 2016 Researchers at Rice University’s Laboratory for Nanophotonics (LANP), with colleagues at Princeton University, have developed a new method for uniting light-capturing photonic nanomaterials and high-efficiency metal catalysts, creating an “antenna-reactor” plasmonic catalyst. By placing a catalytic reactor particle adjacent to a plasmonic antenna, the highly efficient and tunable light-harvesting capacities of plasmonic nanoparticles can be exploited to increase absorption and hot-carrier generation significantly in the reactor nanoparticles. The modularity of this approach provides for independent control of chemical and light-harvesting properties and paves the way for the rational, predictive design of efficient plasmonic photocatalyst...
