Welcome to Our Group Rare Earth & Noble Metal Nanomaterial Chemistry

Rare earth & noble metal nanocrystals are important catalytic materials of clean energy chemistries. How to construct model catalytic nanostructures through controllable synthetic chemistry is the key to the understanding of the molecular catalytic mechanisms so as to obtain high performance (i.e., high activity, high selectivity, and high durability) catalytic materials. Our research interests are focusing on the rational design, controllable synthesis, ordered assembly, catalytic properties and structure-function relationships of rare earth & noble metal nanostructures applied in new energies.
