1. Nonoxidative of methane to value-added chemicals.
Apply the concept of restricted domain catalysis to research and develop applied basic research applicable to the non-oxidative direct conversion of methane to olefins and aromatics and other high value-added products. Through the combination of catalyst and reaction process, we will study the free radical mechanism of the catalytic reaction process and optimize the reaction parameters, to achieve the efficient activation of methane.
2. CO2 reforming of methane.
Research on one-step direct syngas production from methane to carbon dioxide, utilizing two major greenhouse gases simultaneously. By developing highly stable catalysts, the difficulties of catalyst sintering and carbon accumulation in the traditional process are solved, and the conformational relationship between catalyst and reaction performance is investigated in depth. Combining various technical means, including plasma activation, reaction coupling, and electric field assistance, to achieve breakthroughs in the reaction process.
3. Hydrochlorination of Acetylene to Vinyl Chloride
Research on developing particular non-metallic/non-precious metal catalysts for the hydrochlorination of acetylene, focusing on the rational design of the active site and the regulation of the chemical microenvironment, and gradually promoting the industrial application of the process.
