      Research Interests

      We are interested in developing innovative funational materials and exploring the material applications for energy utilisation, environmental protection and healthcare. In particular, these include synthesis or functionalisation of materials such as MOFs, activated carbon, zeolites, metal oxides, porous organic polymers and metal catalysts; characterisation of material structures and properties; removal of aqueous heavy metal cations and organic pollutants; hydrogen and mechane storage; carbon dioxide adsorption; medicine storge and release for therapies (bioactive molecules such as nitric oxide); gas adsorption/separation; antimicrobial function of biomaterials; Pickering emulsification; multiple phase reactuion; FT catalyst and syngas conversion; coal and coke processing.
