About this book

This book introduces the synthesis and modification of 3D hierarchical porous graphene materials and presents various applications of it. By directly constructing a 3D graphene framework with sp2 hybridization and hierarchical porosity, this book is aimed to bridge the gap between 2D ideal nanostructure and 3D practical materials by systematically studying the growth mechanism, synthetic methodology, customized application, and system promotion of 3D hierarchical porous graphene (hpG) materials. The achievements presented offer a valuable contribution to the fundamental research and the industrial development of graphene with significantly improved performance and also inspire further research into various nanomaterials beyond graphene. 

About the authors

Dr. Tang received his B.Eng. and Ph.D. from the Department of Chemical Engineering, Tsinghua University in 2013 and 2018, respectively, under the supervision of Prof. Qiang Zhang and Prof. Fei Wei. He worked as Postgraduate Research Associate at Queen Mary University of London in Prof. Maria-Magdalena Titirici’s Research Group from May to August 2015. During his Ph.D. research, Dr. Tang focused on the design and synthesis of hierarchical porous carbon-based materials and their applications to electrocatalysis and batteries. Since August 2018, he has worked as ARC Research Associate at The University of Adelaide, where he turned research interest to atomic-level design and engineering of nanomaterials for high-performance electrochemical production of fuels and chemicals.

His research activities focus on the development of functional nanomaterials for key reactions in various electrocatalysis and electrosynthesis technologies, including oxygen reduction/evolution reactions (ORR/OER), hydrogen evolution reaction (HER), nitrogen reduction reaction (NRR), and CO2 reduction reaction (CRR). His major contributions involve material synthesis, mechanism study, and catalyst design for targeted electrochemical reactions.
