☆ Synthesis, characterization, and performance of modified nanocarbons

Nanocarbons are new generated functional materials with great potential in energy storage, separation and heterogeneous catalysis. In our research, nonmetal elements were employed to modify the intrinsic chemistry of nanocarbons and the obtained modified materials exhibited outstanding performance in supercapacitor, CO oxidation, biomass conversion and enzyme separation.

☆ Tungsten-based catalyst design for the selective hydrogenolysis of glycerol into 1,3-propanediol

Tungsten-based catalysts bear specific properties in the biomass conversion. On one hand, its carbide exhibits precious metal behaviors in the hydrogen-related reactions; on the other hand, its oxide provides unique complexation with the biomass substance in aqueous reaction system. We developed different W-based catalysts to improve the selectivity of 1,3-propanediol in the hydrogenolysis of glycerol.
