This project is to develop a series of new photocatalyst for fine organic synthesis in irradiation of visible light under mild conditions. To achieve this goal, the detailed study of photocatalytic properties of plasmonic metal nanoparticles supported on zirconium dioxide was carried out, including the catalyst synthesis, characterization and application in redox reactions with high activity. The discovery of these new plasmonic metal nanoparticle photocatalyst may inspire further studies on other efficient photocatalysts and enhance the potential to utilize sunlight via a controlled and environmentally friendly process.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
