    Dr. Zhang’sresearch is highly interdisciplinary. His current research interests focus onthe (crystal-)phase engineering of nanomaterials and controlled epitaxialgrowth of heterostructures, including the synthesis of ultrathintwo-dimensional nanomaterials (e.g. metal nanosheets, graphene, metal dichalcogenides, metal-organicframeworks, covalent organic frameworks, etc.), novel metallic andsemiconducting nanomaterials, novel amorphous nanomaterials and their hybridcomposites, for various applications such as catalysis, clean energy,(opto-)electronic devices, nano- and biosensors, and water remediation.

     

     

    讲座摘要:

    In this talk, Iwill summarize the recent research on the phase engineering of nanomaterials inmy group. It includes the first-time synthesis of hexagonal-close packed (hcp)Au nanosheets (AuSSs) on graphene oxide, the first-time synthesis of 4H hexagonalphase Au nanoribbons (NRBs), the synthesis of crystal-phase heterostructured4H/fcc Au nanorods, the epitaxial growth of metals with novel phases on theaforementioned Au nanostructures, and the synthesis of amorphous/crystallinehetero-phase Pd nanosheets.  In addition, the first-time synthesis of1T'-MoS2 and 1T'-MoSe2 crystals have been achieved. Moreover, the phasetransformation of transition metal dichalcogenide nanomaterials during ourdeveloped electrochemical Li-intercalation method will also be introduced.Interestingly, the lithiation-induced amorphization of Pd3P2S8 is alsoachieved. Currently, my group focuses on the (crystal) phase-based propertiesand applications in catalysis, surface enhanced Raman scattering, waveguide,photothermal therapy, chemical and biosensing, clean energy etc., which webelieve are quite unique and very important not only in fundamental studies,but also in practical applications. Importantly, the concepts of crystal-phaseheterostructures and hetero-phase nanomaterials are proposed.
