Functional Inorganic Materials Chemistry

The development of a sustainable society, which is in harmony with our global environment,requires technology that is compatible with environmental conservation (symbiotic science and technology) and basic theories, and ensures a stable energy supply. Our laboratory is engaged in education and research on new materials, devices, and systems directed toward new energy technologies and environmental cleanup technologies,which harness the chemical properties of composite metal oxides and other functional inorganic materials. Current research interests include:

  • "Nano-meso-macro" hierarchical synthesis of ceramics;
  • Studies on environmental catalyst technologies;
  • Studies on energy-related catalysts and adsorption technologies
