Development of a Green and Sustainable Method to C-H Activate Inert Plastic Wastes into Useful Resources (EdUHK/Departmental Research Fund)

The great demand for synthetic plastics and the ineffective recycling of plastic waste threaten our environment at a time when fossil fuels are gradually running out. The development of an economically viable C–H activation system for alkanes remains a major unsolved problem in this millennium. In this study, we will develop new high-valent metal-oxo catalysts to activate carbon-hydrogen bonds of PE, PP, PS, and PVC by solid green oxidants.
