Organic/inorganic carbon nanomaterials in green energy technologies

1.Organic/inorganic porous carbon catalysts for hydrogen production from electrolyzed water/seawater and high-value chemicals

Organic and inorganic porous carbon catalysts are utilized to produce hydrogen from electrolyzed water or seawater. These catalysts have a porous structure that enhances reactivity, making them efficient in splitting water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. High-value chemicals are often used in this process to increase catalyst efficiency and promote the desired reaction. By combining these catalysts with high-value chemicals, researchers and industries can enhance the yield and selectivity of hydrogen production. Overall, the use of organic and inorganic porous carbon catalysts with high attachment chemicals represents a promising approach for sustainable and efficient hydrogen generation from electrolyzed water or seawater.

2. Development of clean and efficient energy devices (e.g., fuel cells, metal-oxygen/sulfur batteries, microbial batteries)

The development of clean and efficient energy devices, including fuel cells, metal-oxygen/sulfur batteries, and microbial batteries, is a focus in renewable energy research. These technologies offer sustainable energy generation and storage solutions. Fuel cells convert chemical energy into electricity through an electrochemical process, emitting only water and heat. Metal-oxygen and metal-sulfur batteries use metal electrodes and oxygen/sulfur to generate electricity with high energy density. Microbial batteries utilize microorganisms to produce electricity from organic matter. These technologies show promise for advancing renewable energy and reducing reliance on fossil fuels, offering environmentally friendly.

3. Electrochemical refining of high value-added chemicals

Electrochemical refining is a process that uses electrical current to extract and refine high-value chemicals through electrochemical reactions. By subjecting source materials to electrolysis, desired compounds are separated and purified, allowing for precise control over the production of high-quality products such as fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and specialty compounds. This sustainable and efficient method is valuable in the chemical industry for generating premium.
