A review on photo-thermal catalytic conversion of carbon dioxide
5 September 2017

Carbon dioxide emission is driven by our incessant craving for a better quality of life and the consequent urbanisation and economic growth, which lead to ever growing energy demand. Hansen et al.

TiO2/porous adsorbents: Recent advances and novel applications
17 August 2017

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.

Flame spray pyrolysis-designed silica/ceria-zirconia supports for the carbon dioxide reforming of methane
11 August 2017

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.

Plasmon enhanced selective electronic pathways in TiO2 supported atomically ordered bimetallic Au-Cu alloys
1 August 2017

In our latest work in Journal of Catalysis, we investigate the mechanisms involved in plasmon enhanced selective oxidation by Au-Cu/TiO2.

An Operando Mechanistic Evaluation of a Solar-Rechargeable Sodium-Ion Intercalation Battery
15 July 2017

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.

Estimating NDMA Formation in a Distribution System Using a Hybrid Genetic Algorithm
5 July 2017

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.
