Her research interests are in atmospheric chemistry, environment and health, and environmental photocatalysis. In the field of atmospheric chemistry, her ongoing study focuses on the heterogeneous uptake and secondary transformation of typical volatile orgainic contaminants such as formaldehyde on the surface of model particles and real atmospheric particles. The research results are expected to elaborate the heterogeneous reaction mechanism and kinetics process of formaldehyde at molecular level. In the field of environment and health, she investigates the physical and chemical properties and toxicity of ozonized black carbon particles. The enhanced oxidative potential of the particles can result in stronger oxidation uptake of reductive gases. In the field of environmental photocatalysis, a planar device was invented for photoelectrocatalytic removal of gaseous and liquid-phase pollutants; the diode-rectified alternative current was applied as the driving mode for photoelectrocatalysis; photoelectrocatalytic reduction of heavy metal ions was conducted by using TiO2 nanotubes as photoanode.
