Improving the photo-oxidative capability of BiOBr via crystal facet engineering
17 May 2017

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.

Light, Catalyst, Activation Boosting catalytic oxygen activation using a light pretreatment approach
8 May 2017

In recently published article in ACS Catalysis, our researcher in collaboration with the Integrated Materials Design Centre, showed that light pre-treatment of Platinum loaded onto TiO2 nanoparticles can boost catalytic oxygen activation.

Famelab 2017
22 March 2017

Rising levels of CO2 accumulation in the atmosphere has attracted considerable interest in technologies capable of CO2 capture, storage and conversion.

Photo-driven synthesis of polymer-coated platinized ZnO nanoparticles with enhanced photoelectrochemical charge transportation
14 March 2017

ZnO as semiconductor photocatalyst have received a lot more attention lately due to its higher electron mobility as well as charge diffusion coefficient compared to TiO2.

Highly Selective Conversion of CO2 to CO Achieved by a Three-Dimensional Porous Silver Electrocatalyst
14 February 2017

One of the common problem in using electrocatalyst in the CO2 reduction process is a trade-off between product selectivity and product generation rate, where Hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and CO2RRR compete with each other.

Monolithic Integration of Anodic Molybdenum Oxide Pseudocapacitive Electrodes on Screen-Printed Silicon Solar Cells for Hybrid Energy Harvesting-Storage Systems
14 February 2017

In this recently published communication, our researchers report a novel hybrid energy harvesting-storage architecture consisting of anodic amorphous MoOx (a-MoOx) pseudocapacitive electrode monolithically integrated on the rear Al electrode of an industrial screen-printed Si soalr cell.  The c-... read more

Chloramine demand estimation using surrogate chemical and microbiological parameters
14 February 2017

In collaboration with SA Water, Water Corporation (Western Australia) and Central Highlands Water, the researcher from PARTCAT group develop a chloroamine demand model which could be useful for both drinking water quality management and treatment plant operational management.

Functions in cooperation for enhanced oxygen reduction reaction: the independent roles of oxygen and nitrogen sites in metal-free nanocarbon and their functional synergy
7 February 2017

Our recently published article in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A which revealed on how the heteroatom-doped nanocarbons behave in the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) has been selected as Hot Article for 2017 web collection for the journal.

Developing a chloramine decay index to understand nitrification: A case study of two chloraminated drinking water distribution systems
19 December 2016

The management of chloramine decay and the prevention of nitrification are some of the critical issues faced by water utilities that use chloramine as a disinfectant.
