Research interest

My research interest involves the synthesis of metal oxide nanoparticles (especially TiO2) for several applications as a photocatalyst or a catalyst support. Various techniques, namely, sol-gel, solvothermal, or flame spray pyrolysis can be used for such synthesis. TiO2 is modified so as to achieve better performance in photocatalytic reaction under visible light irradiation. Several photocatalytic applications of TiO2 -based photocatalysts have been investigated, including removal of organic contaminants from water and air and conversion of CO2 to products with higher value. We are also interested in dye-sensitized solar cell that incorporates a thin-film TiO2 electrode.
