Research Focus


Our group focuses on the discovery of novel and efficient visible-light-driven photocatalysts containing 0D (CdS QDs, CQDs, etc.), 2D (layered double hydroxides, layered Nb oxides, ZnInS nanosheets, etc.), and 3D (nanovesicles or micro porous, etc.) to meet the above challenges. Furthermore, quantum calculations are also widely applied in our group to allow full exploration of structure-property relationships. By doing so, these catalysts are able to predictably and efficiently convert solar energy into chemical energy through photo/electrochemical water splitting, CO and CO2 reduction process. More...



Reactions, such as oxygen reduction reaction(ORR), oxygen evolutionn reaction (OER), and hydrogen evolutionn reaction (HER), are key parts for various next-generation energy storage and conversion technologies, containing water splitting, fuel cells and rechargeable metal-air batteries. Successful implementation of these technologies hinges on the development of active and durable electrocatalysts.
Our group focuses on the discovery and design of novel, low-cost efficient and durable electrocatalysts including metal, metal oxides, metal nitride, layered double hydroxides, and doped-carbon. More...
