Research

A. Photocatalysis of metallic nanoparticles

We work at the interface of nanomaterials and photochemistry to find new catalytic mechanism.

B. Control Size and Shape of Metallic Nanocrystals

We develop photochemical processes to control particle growth and improve size and shape uniformity of metallic nanocrystals.

C. Catalysis of Silica Nanoparticles for “On water” Synthesis

We use silica nanoparticles to create interfacial water for catalyzing organic reactions.
