After almost 40 years of research and study on photocatalysis, its practical application is still limited, mainly due to its slow kinetics and the challenges associated with reactor design.
The carbon dioxide reforming of methane (DRM) which has the ability to consume carbon dioxide and convert methane to synthesis gas which can then be transformed to synthetic fuels such as diesel and methanol is one solution to address the presence of CO2 in the environment.
In our latest work in Journal of Catalysis, we investigate the mechanisms involved in plasmon enhanced selective oxidation by Au-Cu/TiO2.
Our researcher has underpinned the revolutionary development in the solar battery technology research, where it is possible to solar charge battery withoug having to mount solar panels on to the battery or the device.
The occurence of N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) as disinfection by-product (DBPs) in drinking water distribution system has attarcated significant attention due to its potential to be a human carcinogen.
A number of studies on the preparation of versatiles superstructure of perovskite catalyst using various disassembly methods to replace nobel metal supported catalysts for methane oxidation have been reported in literature.
Over the past decades, porous materials with high surface area have gained considerable attention from both scientific and technological communities due to their capacity to interact with molecules, ions, and atoms not only at the external surface, but also within the interior surface of the... read more

Charge separation within a semiconductor plays a critical role in defining photocatalytic activity. Material modification methods including doping, co-catalyst addition and crystal facet manipulation have been used to promote electron/hole separation and improve photocatalytic activity.
