Photoelectrochemical technology has gained an increasing attention due to its high potential in producing clean energies. Utilizing solar energy to produce methanol from the abundant carbon dioxide is selected as the main focus of the project. Material development/synthesis, electrolyte selection, and integration with the reactor design are among the important aspects to be investigated and optimized. Hence, the objectives of the project collaboration include, synthesis of effective semiconductor photocatalysts and electrolyte which are solar-energy active, design of a high-efficiency photochemical reactor, and optimization of the experimental parameters. The experiments will be designed and conducted in the Electrical, Magnetic, and Optical (EMO) Laboratory and Center of Precision Analysis & Material Research. The center equips field emission SEM, XPS(ESCA), micro-CT, t-XRF, FTIR microscope, Raman microscope, PL, and all the equipment for thermal analysis. Up to now, our EMO laboratory has more than 122 research articles in high-level international SCI journals and the current h-index is 34. Last year, we have cooperated with Associate Prof. Dr. Juan Joon Ching from Nanotechnology & Catalysis Research Centre of University of Malaya, Prof. Sivakumar Manickam from Chemical and Nanopharmaceutical Process Engineering of Nottingham Malaysia campus, Assistant Prof. Dr. Faye Chong from Faculty of Engineering of University of Nottingham Malaysia campus, and Prof. Jothivenkatachala from Anna University BIT-Campus to carry out the above-mentioned research objectives.
