Carbon nanomaterials have many potential applications due to their extraordinary electronic, thermal, and mechanical properties. These properties rely on their unique nanoscale structures.
Advanced carbon research lab led by Prof. Yuan Chen at the University of Sydney focuses on developing scalable processes to synthesize carbon nanomaterials with well-defined atomic structures, assemble nanoscale carbon nanomaterials into functional macroscale structures, and use these novel materials for sustainable energy and environmental applications.
2022-06-20 Yuan Chen gave an invited talk in the 3rd symposium on synthesis, purification, functionalization, and manufacturing of carbon nanotubes and low-dimensional materials at the NT22 conference.
2022-06-15 Yuan Chen gave a talk at the Global Academic Lecture Series organized by Huazhong University and Science and Technology.
2022-06-07 Yuanyuan Yao’s work “Carbon/iron by-product from catalytic methane decomposition as recyclable Fenton catalyst for pollutant degradation” has been accepted by Journal of Hazardous Materials.
2022-04-20 Yuanyuan Yao’s work “Bifunctional catalysts for heterogeneous electro-Fenton processes: a review” has been accepted by Environmental Chemistry Letters.
