报告题目:Phase Engineering of Novel Nanomaterials报 告
this talk, I will summarize the recent research on the phase engineering
of nanomaterials in my group. It includes the first-time synthesis of
hexagonal-close packed (hcp) Au nanosheets (AuSSs) on graphene oxide,
the first-time synthesis of 4H hexagonal phase Au nanoribbons (NRBs),
the synthesis of crystal-phase heterostructured 4H/fcc Au nanorods, the
epitaxial growth of metals with novel phases on the aforementioned Au
nanostructures, and the synthesis of amorphous/ crystalline hetero-phase
Pd nanosheets. In addition, the first-time synthesis of 1T’-MoS2 and
1T’-MoSe2 crystals have been achieved. Moreover, the phase
transformation of transition metal dichalcogenide nanomaterials during
our developed electrochemical Li-intercalation method will also be
introduced. Interestingly, the lithiation-induced amorphization of
Pd3P2S8 is also achieved. Currently, my group focuses on the (crystal)
phase-based properties and applications in catalysis, surface enhanced
Raman scattering, waveguide, photothermal therapy, chemical and
biosensing, clean energy etc., which we believe are quite unique and
very important not only in fundamental studies, but also in practical
applications. Importantly, the concepts of crystal-phase
heterostructures and hetero-phase nanomaterials are proposed.Keywords:

Dichalcogenides报告人简介:Dr. Hua Zhang obtained his B.S. and M.S.
degrees at Nanjing University in China in 1992 and 1995, respectively,
and completed his Ph.D. with Prof. Zhongfan Liu at Peking University in
China in July 1998. He joined Prof. Frans C. De Schryvers group at
Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KULeuven) in Belgium as a Research
Associate in January 1999. Then he moved to Prof. Chad A. Mirkins group
at Northwestern University as a Postdoctoral Fellow in July 2001. He
started to work at NanoInk Inc. (USA) as a Research Scientist/Chemist in
August 2003. After that, he worked as a Senior Research Scientist at
Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology in Singapore from
November 2005 to July 2006. Then he joined the School of Materials
Science and Engineering in Nanyang Technological University (NTU) as an
Assistant Professor. He was promoted to a tenured Associate Professor on
March 1, 2011, and Full Professor on Sept. 1, 2013. Dr. Zhangs research
is highly interdisciplinary. His current research interests focus on the
(crystal-)phase engineering of nanomaterials and controlled epitaxial
growth of heterostructures, including the synthesis of ultrathin
two-dimensional nanomaterials (e.g. metal nanosheets, graphene, metal
dichalcogenides, metal-organic frameworks, covalent organic frameworks,
etc.), novel metallic and semiconducting nanomaterials, novel amorphous
nanomaterials and their hybrid composites, for various applications such
as catalysis, clean energy, (opto-)electronic devices, nano- and
biosensors, and water remediation.He has published 5 invited book
chapters, 73 patent applications (including 8 granted US patents and 1
Singapore patent), and over 450 papers, among which 203 papers were

are over 53,900 with H-index of 115. He has been invited to give more
than 300 Plenary, Keynote or Invited Talks in international conferences,
universities and institutes, and serve as the Session Chair. He has
organized several tens of international conferences and served as the
Symposium Chair or Conference Co-Chair. He is one of three Chairmen of

Academy of Materials (APAM). In Nov. 2014, he was elected as a Fellow of
the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC). In 2016, he was listed in the top
300 most cited researchers in the field of materials science and
engineering (Elsevier Scopus). In 2015-2018, he was listed in the

, from 2 to 10
August 2012
at Brisbane, Queensland, Australia a special session is
convened by Patrick Nunn (Australia), Bruce McFadgen (New Zealand), Iain

at the UNESCO
Headquarters in Paris. Two of our co-leaders will actively participate
at this meeting. Iain Stewart (University of Plymouth, U.K.) will focus
