Brief description This project aims to explore and tailor two-dimensional materials and heterostructures by new synthetic strategies, and to develop a comprehensive understanding of the effects of crystalline and electronic structures on photocatalysis at the atomic level. The project expects to provide deep insight into catalytic mechanisms by bridging the current gap between realistic systems and theoretical calculations. By simply using solar energy, the project aims to provide an efficient and durable method for clean energy generation/conversion, and carbon sequestration. This project will build national research capacity in an emerging field and put Australia at the forefront of research on photocatalysis to address energy and environmental issues.
