Research interests

As a materials scientist, Dr Haitao Li's ultimate objective is to use less to produce more, resulting in a more sustainable and environmental friendly world. His current research aims to replicate the natural process of plant photosynthesis, resulting in fuel sources that don't contribute to global warming.

"Almost all of the energy we use for fuel comes from plants. We use fossil fuels (the fossilised remains of ancient plants) formed millions of years ago to fuel our cars and other machinery, and we eat vegetables and grains (and meat, which is itself 'fuelled' by plants) to fuel our bodies.

"All of these energy sources have as their ultimate origins photosynthesis - the process by which plants use the energy in sunlight to convert water and carbon dioxide into plant structures and create an energy store.

"As we know, burning fossil fuels and releasing the carbon stored within them is warming our atmosphere, with potentially devastating consequences.

"My research aims to mimic the natural process of plant photosynthesis by using solar energy to convert carbon dioxide into useful fuels. The potential success of such solar-to-chemical conversion relies on the development of efficient photocatalysts - materials that will absorb photon energy from sunlight to create the desired chemical reactions.

"I believe that in time, we will be able to obtain much of our fuel through such a process of 'artificial photosynthesis'.

Extending this process, and based upon the excellent optical properties of catalysts, Dr Li also investigates the application of functional materials for photoelectrical catalysis and biology (such as exploring photo-thermal therapy for treating cancer).

"I have been working in these fields for more than eight years, and joined the University of Sydney in 2016 as the next step in my career development. Here I have the strong support of the University, the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies, the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and the Laboratory for Catalysis Engineering, which is great."
