报告题目：“Carbon-based nanomaterials as catalysts for catalytic reactions”
Abstract:The emerging nanocarbons such as graphene, carbon nanotubes, and fullerenes exhibit great merits for heterogeneous catalysis compared with metal- or metal oxide-based catalysts in aqueous solution without toxic ion-leaching and associated secondary contamination. In this talk, several different nanocarbonswill be demonstrated to be active materials in catalytic and photocatalytic reactions for water treatment by advanced oxidation processes.
