Li Yuliang focused his speech on the development history of carbon materials, the core advantages of two-dimensional carbon graphene, and the progress of its application research, elaborating systematically on the development potential and prospects of graphene in such fields as new hydrogen energy conversion, efficient artificial nitrogen fixation, photosynthetic chemical production, life science, and intelligent information.

Li indicated that graphene and its aggregate structure are currently new fields for scientific research in materials science and an important focus of research in new carbon materials. With its rapid progress, graphene is of great significance in basic and applied research in many domains of research.

The lecture was hailed by audience. At the Q&A session, Li patiently and professionally answered the questions from and participating faculty and students, and won great applause from the audience present.
