  • Thermocatalytic Synthesis: First to achieve the synthesis of xylonic acid in a neutral system.
  • Photocatalytic Innovations: Pioneered the low-temperature photocatalytic synthesis of xylonic acid and lactic acid in an alkaline system, demonstrating that high alkalinity favors lactic acid generation while low alkalinity promotes xylonic acid synthesis.
  • Combined Reactions: Innovatively combined oxidation and reduction half-reactions in a single system to achieve selective oxidation synthesis of lactic acid with simultaneous hydrogen evolution.
  • Mechanistic Insights: Conducted the first study on the simultaneous production of lactic acid and CO by photocatalytic biomass refining coupled with CO2 reduction in alkaline systems.
