    • Research Topic
      • Catalyst Chemistry and Surface Science
        Catalyst development is essential to sustainable processes and energy technologies as suitable catalysts allow associated chemical reactions to proceed with reduced energy consumption and waste production, thus promoting efficient conversion between materials and energy. Our research group will engage in developing catalytic materials for green chemistry processes and alternative energy technologies. We will utilize renewable resources and earth-abundant elements as precursors via atom/energy-efficient and cost-effective processes to synthesize catalysts for efficiently converting renewable resources (e.g., CO2 and biomass) into chemicals and alternative fuels. We will integrate surface science, catalyst chemistry, and reaction engineering approaches to investigate catalysis mechanisms and determine the relationship between synthesis conditions, physicochemical properties and catalytic performance, by which rationally synthesize new-generation catalysts to improve current processes and energy technologies with an attempt to facilitate sustainable development of our society.
