Microporous Inorganic Membranes, Novel Porous Materials and Porous Structures

Research Interests

The Yu group's research interests are focused on rationally designing or assembling nano-materials into advanced functional structures, characterizing these nanostructures, understanding their functioning mechanisms, and exploring applications ranging from fuel production,  energy conversion, gas storage, to chemical separations. Our main goal is to improve energy efficiency for fuel production, separation processes, and environmental pollution reduction.
