Heterogeneous Catalysis for Renewable Energy Conversion

Principal Investigator(s): 

Abstract: 

The meso-/microporous zeolites couple the catalytic features of micropores and the improved access and transport consequence of mesopores in a single material, possessing the capacity of processing large molecules involved reactions. The mechanistic characterization of novel meso-/microporous zeolites and development of new catalytic conversion technologies based on these materials are the focuses of this research project.  Our approach involves synergy between fundamental studies on the structural and mechanism of catalytic materials and their practical applications in energy conversion, environmental remediation and petrochemical synthesis.  This novel catalytic materials and technologies aim to solve the energy challenges that facing our society for the renewable energy conversion and storage.
