Research Interests:

  • Preparation, characterization and catalytic application of novel environmental friendly organometallic catalyst (for example metalloporphyrin) and inorganic Meso-structured materials, such Titanium dioxide, Zinc oxide and Tin oxide, coupled oxides .
  • Environmental applications of various advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), especially semiconductor heterogeneous photocatalysis, photoelectrocatalytic degradation of toxic organic pollutants in wastewater and waste gas; Especial to characterized and identified the intermediate products formed during various photodegradation process.
  • The fate and transportations of toxic organic pollutants in the environment, for example POPs, VOCs and EDCs, etc. Especially focus on the potential toxicity decontamination of organic pollutants and its transportation intermediates during various degradation technologies.
  • The application of advanced oxidation processes (AOPs, genetic engineering microorganisms enhanced degradation, especially to improve the biodegradability of persistent toxic chemical substances by photocatalytic or photoelectrocatalytic degradation.
