Abstract:Nitrogen fixation and ammonia synthesis under mild conditions is not only a challenging basic research topic in chemical science, but also closely related to modern agriculture, energy storage and environmental protection. The development of new green ammonia synthesis process is the inevitable development trend of the future ammonia industry, which depends on the development of efficient catalysts and new materials. In recent years, researchers have made many attempts and efforts to address this scientific and technological challenge. As a new catalytic materials, hydrides contain negative hydrogen species, which can be used as electron and hydrogen transfer medium, and show unique chemical properties in ammonia synthesis reaction. I will share the research progress of "chemical nitrogen fixation and hydrogenation of hydrides to ammonia" in this report.
About the speaker: Jianping Guo is a professor at Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from Xiamen University and his Doctor of Science degree from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2015. His main research is "activation and transformation of nitrogen" and hydride material chemistry. He has been working on hydride reaction chemistry since 2009, especially hydride mediated chemical nitrogen fixation and ammonia synthesis.
