Dr Libo SUN

Research Fellow

Dr Sun received his PhD thesis under the supervision of Prof Jihong Yu, in State Key Laboratory of Inorganic Synthesis & Preparative Chemistry, Jilin Unversity, China. His previous research during his PhD focused on the preparation and synthesis of porous materials, including traditional zeolite, metal-organic frameworks and porous organic polymers. At CARES, Dr Sun works in the area of electrochemistry and focuses on CO₂ reduction and oxygen evolution, with complex or single atom catalysts.
