|Can Li has been working on both fundamental and applied research in catalysis and making efforts to reveal the essential relationship between catalytic performance and catalyst structure, and try to understand catalysis at various levels including atomic, molecular as well as nanometer scales and to apply these understandings to the designs and the development of practical applications in energy (solar fuels), fine chemicals (chiral synthesis) and environmental sciences (ultra-deep desulfurization of fuels). In particular to understand the fundamental of catalysis, he has been developing in situ spectroscopy (e.g., UV Raman, Time resolved spectroscopy) to characterize the catalyst structure and catalytic reactions. His current interests include photocatalytic water splitting, CO2 reduction, biomass reforming, photovoltaic solar cells and DNA catalysis.|
