Research Interests-CO2 transformation

CO2 transformation Organic Synthesis Semiconductor oxide

With increasing attention on climate change, the fixation and transformation of carbon dioxide (CO2), a greenhouse gas, has become a hot topic for chemical researcher. CO2 is a one carbon (C1) source that is nontoxic, nonflammable, renewable, abundant, and inexpensive. The use of CO2 instead of toxic phosgene or CO in organic synthesis has high value in research and development. Although the consumption of CO2 by chemical transformation and the total emission of CO2 by fossil combustion are not in the same order of magnitude, the basic research is still of great importance.
