Nanotechnology and Energy Storage
The Nanotechnology Group, led by Professor Ying Chen, forms the Victorian node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Functional Nanomaterials. The group focuses on two main areas: nanotechnology and energy storage. The group's aim is to develop novel nanomaterials and utilise nanotechnology to solve some of the current challenges in energy storage (batteries and supercapacitors), environmental protection and health and medical issues.
Our research interests include:
- Boron nitride nanotubes from synthesis to application
- Nanosheets of graphene, boron nitride (BN), and molybdenum disulphide (MoS2)
- Li and Na ion batteries
- Oil spill cleaning and water purification
- Nanoparticles for 3D printing
