Welcome to Zou Group



The research interest of our group lies in the study of novel porous materials for energy utilization and environmental protection. Main topics of our works are electrochemical materials based on crystalline porous frameworks, phase change compoistes for thermal energy storage, and microporous materials for molecular adsorption and separation (such as carbon dioxide capture, hdyrogen storage, toxic gas adsorption, etc.). We are developing their applications in research fields including fuel cell catalyst, supercapacitor, Li-ion battery, building thermal comforting, thermal rectifier and single molecule adsorption and separation.
