In our research, we focus on the functional groups since they define characteristics of chemical behavior in molecules. And on porous materials or the surfaces of nanoparticles, functional groups carry out the chemoselective adsorptive mechanisms, in addition to the already existing physisorptive pore confinement or surface phenomena. For selective chemical interactions the key concept lies within atomic interface, where inter-atomic electronic relations govern macroscopic trends. We, then, apply these concepts into the main areas of interest: (1) Carbon capture, (2) water treatment, (3) catalysis and (4) energy applications.
