Research Themes & Activity
Theoretical design, experimental verification and application of nano-alloy catalysts in the field of chemical engineering
1. Catalyst Design: A new method of catalyst design based on "structure descriptor" was proposed, and "intelligent calculation and design platform of nano-alloy catalyst" was independently developed, which has been successfully applied to the design of electrocatalysts, petrochemical catalysts and environmental catalysts.
2. Electrochemical Experiment: Directional prepare metal alloy electrocatalysts and atomic-scale dispersed electrocatalysts based on the rational design results through structure descriptors, mainly used for hydrogen generation by water electrolysis, hydrogen-oxygen fuel cells and so on.
3. Industrial Application Research: Research and develop highly active and selective industrial catalysts based on the rational design results through structure descriptors, applied in ethylene epoxidation, hydrogenation of C2/C4, direct synthesis of hydrogen peroxide, advanced treatment of organic wastewater and other important industrial reactions.
