Water Splitting and CO2 Reduction under Visible Light Irradiation using Z-Scheme Systems
2 August 2016

Metal sulfides are highly active photocatalysts for water reduction to form H2 under visible light irradiation, whereas they are unfavorable for water oxidation to form O2 because of severe self-photooxidation (i.e. photocorrosion).

Highly Selective and Stable Reduction of CO2 to CO by a Graphitic Carbon Nitride/Carbon Nanotube Composite Electrocatalyst
13 July 2016

This hot paper presents a novel CO2 reduction electrocatalyst achieved by covalently attaching graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) onto multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs).

Graphical abstract for doi: 10.1039/C6CY00939E
12 July 2016

This paper reports our research on the role of adsorbed oxygen species in catalytic oxidation by Pt/TiO2 with UV-light pre-treatment under ambient condition, using formic acid as the probe molecule.

Hybrid PV/T enhancement using selectively absorbing Ag–SiO2/carbon nanofluids
4 April 2016

Hybrid photovoltaic/ thermal (PV/T) collectors can deliver both electricity and thermal energy with a greater combined efficiency than either technology alone.

BiVO4 {010} and {110} Relative Exposure Extent: Governing Factor of Surface Charge Population and Photocatalytic Activity
4 April 2016

Different photoreactivities of different crystal facets on a photocatalyst have commonly been associated with surface reactivity and selective reactant adsorption. This work demonstrates that crystal facet modification greatly affects surface charge population of a photocatalyst.

Efficient Water Splitting Catalyzed by Cobalt Phosphide-Based Nanoneedle Arrays Supported on Carbon Cloth
8 March 2016

Efficient and low-cost electrocatalysts for water splitting are essential for solar fuel production. This paper report CoP-based nanoneedle arrays supported on carbon cloth as a highly active catalyst for both OER and HER.

Electrospun Polyacrylonitrile-Ionic Liquid nanofibers for superiod PM2.5 capture capacity
8 March 2016

Ambient fine particulate matter (PM) affects both human health and climate. This study shows the preparation of the ionic liquid polyacrylonitrile (PAN) nanofibers with superior PM2.5 capture capacity by introducing small volumes of highly viscous ionic liquid.
