Industrial Chemistry

Prof. Yongdan Li leads the Research Group of Industrial Chemistry. Our group focuses on teaching and research related to chemical reaction engineering and reactor design.
Research topics Industrial Chemistry made by Yingnan Zhao

Research Focus:

The group of Industrial Chemistry focuses on the principles of chemical convertors and those of the processes based on chemical convertors.

The group is active with two categories of projects:

  1. Improving the performance of existing commercial chemical convertors and the understanding on the governing factors, e.g. the mechanical strength of solid catalyst and the mechanical reliability of the catalytic convertors; improvement of the performance of DeNOx, three-way and hydrogen production catalysts and convertors.
  2. Promoting the commercialization of promising new reactions through revealing the limiting factors, e.g. lignocellulose fractionation and transformation to chemicals and fuels; photo-catalytic water splitting; advanced batteries; solid oxide fuel cells with direct carbon and hydrocarbon fuels; methane catalytic decomposition to hydrogen and nano-carbons and NO direct decomposition.

Teaching tasks:

  • CHEM-E7150 - Reaction Engineering
  • CHEM-E7135 - Reactor Design
