In this newly published article, we investigate the effect of electronic excitations on photothermal catalytic CO2 hydrogenation over a Cu/ZnO/Al2O3 (CZA) catalyst by probing the surface to explore light-triggered surface reactions via X-ray spectroscopies and in situ diffuse reflectance... read more

In the latest edition of CREATE, Engineers Australia's magazine, Scientia Prof Rose Amal shares her passion as Chemical Engineer and how the view on this profession has changed over the years.
Congrats Dr Dawei Wang for being named one of 2018 Highly Cited Researcher by @Clarivate #HighlyCited 2018. Dr Dawei Wang and his team are working to solve global energy crisis by creating innovative ways to store energy generated from renewable energy soruces.
Nitrogen-doped carbon catalysts have been extensively investigated as cost-effective alternatives for CO2 reduction reaction (CO2RR) due to their apparent benefits such as high surface area, high material conductivity and opportunity for tuning dopant concentration. As reported in ACS Energy... read more
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.
