"The increasing accumulation of CO2 from fossil fuel combustion is the main cause of global warming, which raises serious environmental concerns. To date, various catalysts have been extensively explored for CO2 reduction and water splitting. However, most of these traditional semiconductors still suffer from very low efficiencies. I mainly focus on the design and synthesis of atomically thin 2D layers, with efforts to largely improve the photo-/electro- catalytic efficiencies."

Research Project

Atomic-Precision Design of 2D Metal Sheets Confined in Graphene for CO2 Electroreduction

Duration: September 2020 - September 2022

Mentor: Prof. Dr. Peter Strasser, Faculty II, Department of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering Division

Abstract: Conversion of CO2 to valuable hydrocarbons is a promising method to address the issues of global warming and energy crisis. We aim to design the sandwich-like structure of 2D metal sheets (e.g., copper, nickel, cobalt etc.) in the confined space of graphene, to achieve effective charge transport, increased selectivity and activity for electroreduction of CO2. Moreover, we want to provide a knob for understanding the relationship between the structure and the property of electroreduction of CO2, thus achieving electrochemical reduction of CO2 with high performance.
