Metal organic framework as advanced materials for hydrogen production

21st century’s  major challenge is the supply of energy for the modern industrial society, controlling and reducing pollution from fossil fuels. Discovering and expanding new energy sources to replace fossil fuels, including renewable energy sources, needs to be considered more than before. Meanwhile, environmentally friendly and renewable energy resources can reduce fossil fuel emissions, reduce greenhouse gases and overcome the energy crisis of the present century.

Hydrogen is the most viable option to replace fossil fuels. In my PhD work, I have developed the nanocomposites of g-C3N4@M/MOF for photocatalytic hydrogen production. The results of spectroscopic, microscopic, physical, elemental and photoelectrochemical analyses show that the synthesis of nanocomposites was successful. The hybrid nanocomposite exhibits high active surfaces, the capability of photon adsorption, high exciton separation efficiency, a proper bond structure and a synergistic mass effect and it contributes to good performance in hydrogen production. The two mechanisms of doping metals and core-shelling g-C3N4 with the MOF can help in developing advanced nanocomposites that are capable of desirable photocatalytic activity for hydrogen production. In this seminar, I will present a brief overview about what I have done so far and what I plan to do during my stay at Smart Materials group at MCI.
