Dr. HO Wing Kei - Design and Fabrication of Highly Efficient Functionalized Graphitic Carbon Nitride Photocatalyst for Environmental Remediation
Chief Investigator:

Dr. HO Wing Kei

Project Year:



(Early Career Scheme, RGC, HK$1,166,796, 2013-2016), We propose a three-year study to (i)synthesize the g-C3N4 with high crystallinity and large surface area by pyrolysis under controlled conditions, (ii)modify the g-C3N4 with functional species, which are homogeneous distributed by an ultrasonic spray method, (iii)investigate the effectsof spray aerosol with functional species on the formation of g-C3N4 under pyrolysis, (iv)evaluate the photocatalytic performance of functionalized g-C3N4 in the degradation of air pollutants such as nitrogen oxygen and formaldehyde under visible light and (v)interpret their degradation mechanism of such air pollutants.
