Liu Yang, a master of school of Materials and Engineering, published a paper in Nature's

Recently,  the school of  Materials and Engineering, Combustion  Engineering Group Master Liu Yang under the guidance of Professor Feng Peizhong,  Nature's Scientific Reports, published the title Novel Fabrication and Enhanced  Photocatalytic MB Degradation of Hierarchical Porous Monoliths of  MoO3 Nanoplates by China University of Mining and Technology as the first signed  unit and communication unit. Scientific Reports is a comprehensive academic  journal with significant influence from the Nature Group, which ranks 7/63 in  the Q1  of JCR.

Catalytic  materials have been one of the hotspots in domestic and foreign research. Under  the strong demand of energy and environmental problems, the study of photo  catalysis in the world has been found from the initial experimental phenomena,  and gradually guided by the photo catalytic material to the efficient photo  catalytic materials system design. The vacuum freeze-drying technology at low  temperature, low pressure conditions will be directly by sublimated bywater  vapor, thus giving the product a lot of special performance. Liu Yang students  and others working on ammonium molybidate as raw material and used freeze-drying  process to prepare porous MoO3. In contrast to the traditional catalyst, the  porous structure enables it attaining a high adsorption rate and specific  surface area, while the high specific surface area means more catalytic reaction  sites. Experiments show that the catalytic efficiency of MoO3 to methylene blue  is close to 100% in 60 minutes under visible light radiation. The study was  funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China and the International  Exchange and Cooperation Project.
