Direct Methane to Methanol (DMTM) Conversion
My current work focuses on developing a new type of enzyme-inspired catalyst, aiming at efficient, selective DMTM conversion.
Another activity is to develop and modify novel semiconductors for photoelectrodes that have broad light absorption spectra, high energy conversion efficiencies, long operation hours and good economical viabilities. We are also interested in the development of a solid-state photoelectrochemical (PEC) cell for water splitting and fuel production, e.g. the production of H2 and formates from the reduction of H+ and CO2, respectively. Further development of this solid-state PEC cell will be the integration of biocatalytic enzymes, e.g. FDH, to catalyze the fuel production and reduce the cost as well.
