Title of Speech: Layered double hydroxides based materials fabricated by topological transformation strategy and their application in catalysis

Abstract: Layered double hydroxides (LDHs) are a class of two-dimensional layered materials, with the general formula [M1-x2+Mx3+(OH)2]x+[Ax/n]n-∙mH2O, where the main layers are connected by octahedral metal oxide MO6 and the metal ions are highly dispersed in the layers. LDHs have unique structural characteristics such as controllable size and thickness, topological transformation in the process of structural transformation etc., which endow LDHs a variety of adjustable elements. By taking LDHs as precursors, heterostructured metal oxides or supported highly dispersed metal catalysts, with abundant heterostructures, high dispersion, controllable morphologies, can be prepared through topological transformation in air or reducing atmosphere. In this report, a series of Co-based LDHs were used as precursors to fabricate heterostructured catalysts by topological transformation. The structures of the heterostructured catalysts were carefully characterized, and more importantly, fine tuning of heterostructured interfaces can be achieved by adjusting the calcination temperatures. These heterostructured catalysts have been used in the oxygen evolution reaction, acceptorless dehydrogenative coupling reaction of alcohol and amine, and the photocatalytic activation reaction of methane.

Biography: Dr. Yu-Fei SONG received his PhD in 2002. After the postdoc research in Leiden University (2002-2004, The Netherlands), Max-Planck Institute of Bio-inorganic Chemistry (2004-2005, Germany), and The University of Glasgow (2005-2008, UK), he joined Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT) in 2008. He is currently holding a full professor position in the State Key Laboratory of Chemical Resource Engineering, BUCT. His research interests mainly focus on developing the polyoxometalates (POMs) and/or layered double hydroxides (LDHs)-based multifunctional materials. He has published over 150 SCI research papers in journals such as Nature Protocol., Nature Commun., Chem. Soc. Rev., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., J. Am. Chem. Soc., Energy. Environ. Sci., Chem. Sci. etc. He was awarded as Chang Jiang Scholars Program-Young Scholars, Ministry of Education (2015); and National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars of China (2016).
