Research in the unit of Sustainable Chemistry is applied chemistry and it has been divided three main research focus:
1) Biomass conversion to added-value products, especially catalysis in biomass modification and novel biomass-based water purification materials
2) Novel adsorbents in water treatment, chemical coagulation/elecrocoagulation and catalytic wet air oxidation
3) Development of new energy storage materials, especially lithium ion batteries and solar cells
In addition, research focus development inorganic analytical methods to the previously mentioned focus areas and industrial processes.
