Nanomaterials for Heterogeneous Catalysis Towards Sustainable Environment
Prof. Shaobin Wang
Curtin University, Australia
Date: July 11, 2018 (Wednesday)
Venue: The conference room of the SKLC
In recent years, people are seeking for green energy and better environment, which requires novel materials and technologies. Nannodiamond and metal-based quantum dots are receiving wide interests for catalytic reactions. In this seminar, I will present our latest research in using carbon and metal-based quantum dots for catalytic oxidation of toxic organics for water treatment and solar light photocatalytic water splitting to generate hydrogen and oxygen.
Prof. Shaobin Wang obtained Ph.D. from the University of Queensland (Australia). He is now a John Curtin Distinguished Professor at Department of Chemical Engineering of Curtin University.
