Professor Yunhang Hu from Michigan Technological University visited the State Key Laboratory of Elemental Organic Chemistry

On October 18th, Professor Yunhang Hu was invited by Professor Liangnian He, from the State Key Laboratory of Elemental Organic Chemistry, to deliver a speech on "Highly Efficient Visible Light Photocatalysis for Hydrogen Production and CO2 Conversion ".

Professor Hu first introduced the status quo of the clean energy and the development of hydrogen and solar energy. He then presented his research on highly efficient visible light photocatalysis for hydrogen and CO2 conversion. His group increased the efficiency for the visible light photocatalysis by three orders of magnitude. Professor Hu’s wonderful presentation attracted a lot of interest. After the report, teachers and students discussed with Professor Hu on his research and the future of the light photocatalysis.
