Invited talk
Efficient photocatalytic reduction of environmental pollutants

Qi Li
Institute of Metal Research, CAS, China

Prof. Li graduated with honor from Tsinghua University in 2000, where he got his double bachelor of engineering degree in materials science and engineering (major) and computer technology and application (minor). From 2000 to 2007, he studied in the department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he got his MS and Ph.D. degrees. From 2007 to 2009, he worked as a post-doctoral research associate in University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In 2009, he joined the faculty of Institute of Metal Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences as a professor, and is now leading the Environment Functional Materials Division as the deputy director.

Prof. Lis research is focused on the development of functional materials for environment remediation, including photocatalytic materials and photocatalysis, adsorbents for the removal of heavy metal ions from water, catalytic materials for water purification, sensors for environmental monitoring, and direct-write assembly of three dimensional structures. In his research, he had developed highly-efficient, visible-light-activated photocatalysts with post-illumination photocatalytic memory effect, proposed ageneral material criterion for the selection of highly efficient arsenic adsorbents based on metal oxides/hydroxides and developed a series of highly efficient arsenic adsorbents based on this criterion, and developed catalytic materials to remove various carcinogenic anions from water. He had authored/co-authored 96 research papers in referred journals, including Advanced Materials, Applied Catalysis B: Environmental, Environmental Science & Technology, Journal of Materials Chemistry A, Water Research, Chem Sus Chem, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, and Chemical Engineering Journal, and a book chapter. He had applied for 6 US patents (5 granted) and 46 Chinese Patents (17 granted).
