Abstract

Energy constitutes one of the most important and challenging issues in the world and no single solution will be able to provide the required answer to this gigantic problem we face. In helping China to advance technologies, the State Key Laboratory of Physical Chemistry of Solid Surfaces is conducting cutting-edge research in a variety of fields for energy technologies and new concepts for energy storage. In particular, nanomaterials are crucial for developing high-performance electrochemical energy conversion and storage devices, including fuel cells, electrolyzers, batteries and supercapacitors. The property of nanomaterials for electrochemical energy conversion and storage depends strongly on their structures. In this lecture, the speaker will discuss the developed novel methods which synthesize various nanostructures of metal and metal oxide nanoparticles. Strong correlations between structures and electrochemical performance in fuel cells and batteries will also be presented. Furthermore, the developing trend of fuel cells and batteries will be discussed.

 

About the speaker

Prof Shigang Sun received his Docteur ès Sciences (Doctorat d'Edat) from Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI) in 1986 and then furthered his post-doctoral research in the Laboratoire d’Electrochimie Interfaciale du CNRS.  He returned to China in 1988 and became the Vice-President of Xiamen University in 2000. Prof Sun is currently the Professor of Chemistry and the Academic Committee Chair of State Key Laboratory of Physical Chemistry of Solid Surfaces at Xiamen University.

Prof Sun’s research focuses on electrocatalysis, electrochemical surface science, spectroelectrochemistry, nanomaterials and chemical power sources. Prof Sun was elected a member of Chinese Academy of Sciences (2015), Fellow of International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE) (2007), and Fellow of Royal Chemistry (RSC) (2005). He received numerous awards including the Brian Conway Prize from ISE, the Distinguished Contribution Award from the Chinese Society of Electrochemistry, and the State Natural Science Award (2nd Degree) of China.
