Nanjing University is marching towards new environmental materials and renewable energy

A Research on new environmental materials and renewable energy carried out in China for the first time has settled in Nanjing University, and has produced important phased research results with the support and investment of the University

zouzhigang, a distinguished professor of Nanjing University and director of the Research Center for environmental materials and renewable energy, made a demonstration to the author: put two pieces of dark glass stuck together under a 60 watt lamp, turn on the lamp, and then connect the simple small fan connected with wires at the other end of the glass. In less than a second, the blades of the fan turned up. As soon as the light was turned off, and with joint efforts, the fan stopped rotating. Isn't this amazing? The mystery lies in the nano photocatalytic materials coated on the glass

Professor Zou told the author that the four hot research fields in the world today are information, biology, environment and energy, among which the energy problem has become the key to the continued survival and sustainable development of human society. According to data, the current oil reserves in the world are insufficient to maintain for 100 years at the current consumption rate. Moreover, the pollution of fossil fuels such as oil to the atmosphere and the environment is even more shocking. Committed to reducing the environmental load of the earth, the research on renewable new energy and environmental materials has become one of the important directions of high-tech research in the world today, and NTU will also strive to occupy a leading position in this field

Professor Zou's research group successfully developed a visible light responsive photocatalyst for total water decomposition for the first time in the world. This research achievement was published in the world's top academic journal Nature in December, 2001, and has generated great repercussions in the international academic and industrial circles

since zouzhigang and others carried out the research on new environmental materials and energy at Nanjing University in 2003, they have realized the experiment of photocatalytic decomposition of water to produce hydrogen under outdoor actual sunlight for the first time, which has confirmed their research conclusions in the laboratory where computers, industrial control boxes and printers are covered with cloth to prevent dust and water. In July, zouzhigang of Nanjing University applied for a patent in Japan and China for the research achievement of visible light responsive photocatalyst for total water decomposition. At present, the research results of environmental materials and renewable energy are applying for a second patent in China. It is reported that if the conversion rate of solar energy into hydrogen energy reaches 3%, human beings can produce hydrogen economically, such as hydrogen fuel cells. By 2030, the photocatalytic decomposition technology of JGJ 3 ⑵ 002, the technical specification for concrete structures of high-rise buildings, is expected to be applied on a large scale
