Our group member Baozhai Han has successfully defended his PhD dissertation entitled: “Silver based catalysts for the selective oxidation of cyclic hydrocarbons under mild conditions”. Well done Dr. Han! The direct selective oxidation of hydrocarbons is an important process both in industry and academia to produce oxygen containing compounds by the transformation of petrochemical feedstock,Continue reading “PhD Award for Baozhai Han”
Our group member Changyan Zhou successuflly defended her PhD dissertation entitled: “Zeolite Catalysts for Water Treatment: Catalytic Wet PeroxideOxidation of Phenol”. Well done Dr. Zhou! The discharge of wastewater into the environment without adequate treatment aggravateswater shortage worldwide, which prompts the development of efficient wastewater treatment technology as an active area of research in recentContinue reading “PhD Award for Changyan Zhou”
Cooperative Coupling of Oxidative Organic Synthesis and Hydrogen Production over Semiconductor-Based Photocatalysts
Merging hydrogen (H2) evolution with oxidative organic synthesis in a semiconductor-mediated photoredox reaction is extremely attractive because the clean H2 fuel and high-value chemicals can be coproduced under mild conditions using light as the sole energy input. Following this dual-functional photocatalytic strategy, a dreamlike reaction pathway for constructing C-C/C-X (X = C, N, O, S)Continue reading “Cooperative Coupling of Oxidative Organic Synthesis and Hydrogen Production over Semiconductor-Based Photocatalysts”
