Research interests

Nanomaterials - those manufactured at scales 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair - are valued for their unique properties, which can offer exceptional performance in a wide range of applications. Dr Li Wei is developing new methods of manufacturing these remarkable materials, with the aim of translating the resulting properties into practical applications for a greener future.

"My research focuses on developing novel methods of achieving control over the assembly of materials at nanoscale, which can grant such materials exceptional properties for use in a range of energy-related applications.

"One example is the splitting of water molecules to produce hydrogen gas for use as a clean fuel.

"The burning of hydrogen can produce large amounts of heat or generate large amounts of electricity. But the industrial electrolysis cells currently used to produce hydrogen use expensive platinum as the catalyst, hindering our access to cheap hydrogen sources.

"So I am looking at how we can produce hydrogen more cheaply, through a process that results in only water as a by-product, eliminating the release of greenhouse gases and other hazardous by-products generated in the burning of fossil fuels.

"Within the next few years I'm hoping to develop prototype electrolysis cells to realise the pilot-scale production of cheap hydrogen gas as a clean fuel source. This will not only provide an economical fuel source but also reduce the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere and so address climate-related concerns.

"Another example of my research is the synthesis and separation of single-walled carbon nanotubes - hollow carbon tubes with a diameter 10,000 times narrower than human hair but with electric conductivity 100 times higher than silver. They can be used to fabricate transistors, which are essential components of modern electronic devices.

"I hope my research can make some important contributions to realising the superior properties of nanomaterials, particularly in the efficient production of cheap and renewable 'green' fuels, to create a more sustainable human society.

"I have been working in this field for 10 years, and I joined the University in 2016. The University offers me great academic freedom and a unique multidisciplinary research environment in which to develop my intellectual capabilities and creativity."
