Increasing demand for sustainable energy has accelerated research on various renewable technologies. Developing catalytic energy conversion technologies for replacing the traditional energy source is highly expected to resolve the fossil fuel exhaustion and related environmental problems. Exploring stable and high‐efficiency catalysts is of vital importance for the promotion of these technologies. Single‐atom catalysts (SACs), with atomically distributed active sites on supports, perform as emerging materials in catalysis and present promising prospects for a wide range of applications. My research focuses on the development single atom catalyst for photo/electro-catalysis, including water splitting and CO2 reduction. Related results/conclusion guide the design of efficient catalytic materials and get us closer to the truth.
Dr. Huabin Zhang graduated from Chinese Academy of Science. After graduation, he stayed in the university as an assistant professor. He then moved to Japan and join into National Institute for Materials Science in Tsukuba for conducting his post-doc research. In 2017, he joined into Nanyang Technological University as research fellow. In 2021, he moved to KAUST as assistant professor.
He mainly focuses on the development single atom catalyst for photo/electro-catalysis, including water splitting and CO2 reduction. He has published 97 SCI papers with total citation times of 11000 and H-index of 52. 23 of the published papers are highly cited in Web of Science and 31 papers have been cited over 100 times. Among them, 50 papers were published as the first author or corresponding author in Science Advances, Joule, Energy & Environmental Science, Journal of the American Chemical Society, Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Advanced Materials, Advanced Energy Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, ACS Nano and Nano Energy et al.
