Solar Energy and Advanced Materials Research Group
A grand challenge facing our society today is energy security. Therefore an economical and robust technology for renewable and clean energy synthesis is highly sought-after. Research in our group focuses on the development of innovative (maybe disruptive) chemical approaches to solar energy conversion and storage and sustainable chemical processes, which includes CH4 activation, N2 conversion to ammonia, water splitting to H2 fuel and CO2 conversion to hydrocarbons. In parallel, we are interested in process intensification for materials manufacturing (including nanomaterials) in order to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emission during chemical production.
Welcome to the Tang Group
The group undertakes fundamental scientific studies of new catalysts and new chemical processes as well as device fabrication, through novel materials design and device engineering, all at the interface of Chemistry, Materials Science, Physics and Chemical Engineering.
