1. Homogeneous catalysis for oxidation process
2. Green chemistry and sustainable technologies
3. Synthesis methodology
The research activities of Prof. Gao are mainly concentrated on two aspects. One is the design and synthesis of catalytic materials , involving polyoxometalates and metal complex. Another target is to use these catalytic materials for oxidation reactions that are potentially significant for energy conversion and environmental protection, such as epoxidation of olefine, aerobic oxidation of alcohol and hydroxylation of benzene.
