Welcome to the homepage of Lab of Advanced Nanostructures & Transfer Processes. We are a big family with 6 faculty members and more than 30 graduates. Our research topics focus on the synthesis of kinds of nanomaterials for environmental remediation and energy generation. Two dimensional materials, including graphene, TMDs, are the foundation for the construction of our functional materials. By combing with metal NPs, metal oxides NPs…,

2D Transition Metal Dichalcogenide (TMD)
Ultrathin two-dimensional nanosheets of layered TMDs are versatile semiconductors. In our lab, Mono- or few-layered TMDs are synthesized through exfoliation of bulk materials and CVD method. The phase transition of TMDs between 2H and 1T is an important topic, and the generated nanosheets will have different performance in energy transform, storage and other energy related fields. In addition, the TMDs can be modified by kinds of metals or semiconductors for functional composites. They can be then used as sensors, HER or ORR electrocatalysts, and photocatalyts with excellent properties.
Our research includes the synthesis, characterization, and application of novel carbon materials. One such carbon material is graphene and its derivatives. We aimed to modify the graphene using chemical or physical method, and used them for catalytic applications. Due to the high electrical and thermal conductivity, they holds great promise for electrical energy storage such as in ultracapacitors and in various device applications such as sensors.
We are also interested in the shape controlled synthesis of nanomaterials using hydrothermal, seed-Mediated and template method. They showed shape and facet related catalytic activities in kinds of chemical and photochemical reactions. Other newly appeared materials, such as graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4), black phosphorous, polymers and MOF are also popular in our lab. All of these materials can be used as chemical catalysts, photocatalysts or sensors in the energy and environmental fields.
In this field, we aimed to develop new technologies for kinds of industrial intermediates. Lots of outcomes from our lab has been applied in the industrial production, such as 4,4′-dinitrostilbene-2,2′-disulfonic Acid, dimethyl 1,4-cylohexanedione-2,5-dicarboxylate, and so on. New sustainable waste treatment technologies for these products are also our study target.
