Dr Junwang Tang is a Reader in Energy, Leader of Solar Energy and Advanced Materials Group in the Department and a Fellow of the RSC. He currently leads a research team including postdoctoral researchers, academic visitors and research students with financial support from EU PF7, Qatar, UK EPSRC, Leverhulme, Royal Society, RAE and so on.
Research interests encompass structure-controlled nanomaterials synthesis by a flow system powered by microwave irradiation, solar H2 synthesis from water, CO2 capture and conversion to a renewable fuel, photocatalytic water treatment, microwave catalysis and biomaterials fabrication. Such studies are undertaken in parallel with the mechanistic understanding and device optimisation to address the renewable energy supply and environmental purification.
