LDH Nano-Engineering

Layered double hydroxides (LDHs), a class of the vital 2D layered anionic clays, consist of layers with positively charged (brucite-like M(OH)6 octahedra) and anions located interlayer. Owing to the advantages of the adjustable chemical composition of layers, easy exchange of anions between layers, structure topological transformation and large specific surface area, LDHs have many important applications in photocatalysis and electrocatalysis—as catalysts themselves, catalyst supports, or catalyst precursors.

C1 Photo-Conversion

Our group focuses on the discovery of novel and efficient photo-driven catalysts containing 2D LDH, LDH derived metals, LDH derived metals/oxide interface) to meet the above challenges. By doing so, these catalysts are able to predictably and efficiently convert solar energy into chemical energy through photo-driven (photo/photothermal catalysis) Fischer-Tropsch synthesis, CO2 reduction (include CO2+H2 and CO2+H2O), water gas shift, steam reforming of methane and steam reforming of methanol process.

N2 Photo-Fixation

Utilizing solar energy to convert molecular nitrogen into fixed nitrogen products represents a promising approach for the production of valued nitrogen-based chemicals under ambient conditions. This field is of great research significance and is full of opportunities and challenges. More...


Nobel-Metal Free Electrocatalysis

Using electrocatalysis to realize the conversion between electric energy and chemical energy is one of the ideal ways to realize the sustainable development of energy and the green and efficient synthesis of chemicals. Advanced electrocatalysis system is the core of realizing high-efficiency electric chemical energy conversion, which includes many scientific issues like catalyst design, interfacial charge transfer catalytic reaction mechanism, and electrocatalysis device design. Moreover, it is also an intersection of electrochemistry, interface science, material science and theoretical calculation. In recent years, electrocatalysis has become the research focus in the field of energy and catalysis. More...


Three-Phase Catalysis

Traditional heterogeneous catalysis mainly occurs at gas-solid or liquid-solid two phase interfaces. However, gas, solid and liquid phases coexist in many novel catalytic reaction systems (water decomposition, carbon dioxide reduction, oxygen reduction, etc.), resulting in multi-interactions between three-phase substances (infiltration, adhesion, interfacial transport, etc.). Conventional catalysis theories and research methods usually do not consider these influencing factors, which limits people's understanding and application of the catalytic conversion process occurs at three-phase interfaces.
