Our current research mainly involves chemical analysis and green chemistry. In chemical analysis, development of separation related techniques such as separation materials, microwave-assisted and microdialysis-derived techniques, green sample pretreatment, as well as subcritical water liquid chromatography and capillary electrophoresis are studied.  In green chemistry aspect, synthesis and application of ionic liquids, biodiesel, biofuel, microbial fuel cell, and nano-graphene sheet are studied.  We also involve in the studies of advanced oxidation processes.
