Project title: Electrochemical synthesis of hydrogen peroxide using vertical graphene catalyst
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is one of the 100 most important chemicals in the world with a wide range of applications including wastewater treatment, pulp and bleaching, disinfectant, and energy storage. My project focuses on electrosynthesis of H2O2 using metal-free vertical graphene catalyst, aiming at achieving high activity and selectivity towards H2O2 and realizing large-scale production.
