The chemistry of a material becomes unpredictable in the nanorealm. We discover, understand, and correlate the fascinating behaviors of nanomaterials to their fine nanostructures, so that we can design, synthesize, and engineer novel nanomaterials toward real-life applications.
We focus on the wet-chemical synthesis of novel inorganic nanomaterials and their applications in catalysis, optics, and clean energy. We are also interested in innovative synthetic methods that can engineer nanomaterials towards desired applications.
- Innovation in the bottom-up synthesis
- Advanced materials characterization
- Unravelling the nanostructure-property relationship
- Rational design from property to application
