Brief description This project will develop a novel material platform based on metal-free graphitic carbon nitride and its functionalised composites in solar energy utilisation for water treatment, energy conversion to hydrogen, solar cell, and electrochemical battery in energy storage. The project will address the scientific challenges in rational nanomaterial synthesis, functionalisation and practical applications. The research outcomes will provide a scientific basis for development of cutting-edge nanotechnologies for sustainable energy transformation and wastewater treatment, leading to significant benefits in Australian energy industries and environment.
