Our research interests focuses on the material chemistry and photochemistry, and organic materials for opt-electronic devices. I2CNER research focuses on the design, synthesis, and surface and interface interaction for photo catalytic water-splitting reaction. We focus to study the new fundamental organic dyes using the synthetic method that are candidates for dye-sensitized photo catalytic water-splitting reaction system in order to improve the light absorption, durability, and hydrogen production rate. Also, we focus the synthesis of novel organic dye for photo voltaic, and organic semicondoctor.
