Chunyan Sun

Shaoxing University, China

Biography

Chunyan Sun received her Ph.D. in Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2010. She has been a Visiting Scholar in John C. Crittenden’s group in School of Civil and Environmental Engineering of Georgia Institute of Technology, USA in 2017. She is an associate professor in the school of Chemistry at the Shaoixing University in China 
Her research interest focuses on the photochemistry reactions in the environment and synthesis of novel photocatalytic materials for degradation of organic pollutants and the relevant mechanisms. 
 

Abstract

As typical persistent organic pollutants, polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) have aroused highly environmental concerns because of their toxicity and recalcitrant degradation. Here, we will report the visible-light-induced degradation of PBDEs by several strategies. The reaction kinetics, influence factors and possible photoreductive mechanisms have been discussed. This research may provide the green and efficient methods to remove halogenated pollutants by using visible light.
