Rational photocatalyst design for biomass valorization and H2 coproduction

Heng's paper was accepted in iSience. In his work, titled "Coproduction of hydrogen and lactic acid from glucose photocatalysis on band-engineered Zn1-xCdxS homojunction", he demonstrates a rational design of Zn1-xCdxS solid solution homojunction photocatalyst with a pseudo-periodic cubic zinc blende (ZB) and hexagonal wurtzite (WZ) structure for efficient glucose conversion to simultaneously produce hydrogen and lactic acid.

Congrats Heng Zhao!
