Efficient green energy technology, including energy conversion and storage, has been and will be one of the most important topics for all the societies now and in future. With this, using Nano Carbon (graphene and nanotubes) and Organic/Polymeric materials, Prof. Yongsheng Chen’s group has been pursuing the design, synthesis and scalable applications of these materials for green energy conversion and storage (OPV, Battery, Supercapacitor, etc.).More information can be found at website: http://nanocenter.nankai.edu.cn/.
