General Information

Our research is driven by the two general aspects in nanoparticles: (1) Chemical synthesis and self-assembly of monodisperse monometallic and bimetallic nanoparticles; (2) Elaboration of the catalysis of as-synthesized nanoparticles in various inorganic or organic reactions. The biggest challenge in heterogeneous catalysis is to increase the surface area of the catalysts, which has a direct effect on the catalytic activity. Reducing the particle size of a heterogeneous catalyst is a promising way of increasing their catalytic activity. An efficient way of increasing catalytic activity is to use the metal nanoparticles which are more active catalysts than the respective bulk metal, owing to their high surface/volume atom ratios. The synthesis of transition metal nanoparticles with controllable size and size distribution are of great importance due to their potential applications in catalysis. The main focus of our research group is the synthesis of high-quality monometallic/bimetallic nanoparticles with monodisperse size and composition-control and to study their catalysis in various organic or inorganic reactions. The following catalytic reactions are studied in our research group: (i) hydrolysis, methanolysis and dehydrogenation of ammonia-borane, (ii) formic acid dehydrogenation, (iii) Suzuki-Miyaura, Heck and Sonogashira cross-coupling reactions, (iv) the reduction of unsaturated organic groups via transfer hydrogenation or tandem reactions, (v) oxidation of alcohols and (vi) dihydroxylation of olefins. We are always open to apply our nanoparticles as catalysts in other important reactions.
