Cuprous Oxide (Cu2O) is a photocatalyst with severe photocorrosion issues. Theoretically, it can undergo both self‐oxidation (to form copper oxide (CuO)) and self‐reduction (to form metallic copper (Cu)) upon illumination with the aid of photoexcited charges.
The research into developing cost-effective and active catalyst materials that can replace the precious-metal-based benchmarks for electrocatalytic water splitting as well as for large-scale utilisation has been intense.
PartCat researchers have been awarded $2.3 million for two projects that will harvest solar energy to produce renewable hydrogen.
With limited fuel reserves and increasing concentrations of atmospheric CO2, the conversion of CO2 into valuable products is of ever increasing importance.

In the latest round of Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Grant funding, Prof Amal and her team has secure $562K for a project that will enable timely treatment of industrial waste water as well as swerate treatment plant eflluents using simple and cheap catalyst materials.
Congratulations to our leader, Scientia Professor Rose Amal for being appointed to the highest level of Order of Australia, the Companion of the Order of Australia (AC) at the 2018 Queens Birthday.
Congratulations to Helena Yuan Wang for receiving the 2017 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad.
In this paper, Sun et al reported their work on a rechargeable Al-Li alloy/SPAN battery with a high voltage of 1.5 V constructed using an Al-Li alloy anode, a polymeric sulfur cathode, and a lithium ion electrolyte.
The study recently published in Chem. Eng. Science, is aiming to explore the effect of plasmonic enhancement to the role of Ni-Au bimetallic catalysts for CO2 reduction and methanation. Lovell, et.
