4)Main research and findings: Prof. Li mainly does interdisciplinary research on Chemical Physics, Materials and Chemical Engineering and has published over 90 papers on major academic journals home and abroad, one international patents (Patent No:JPA2004160374,Patent No:JP2005009924) and ten national patents. Now, he mainly focuse on: 1.Catalytic conversion of biomass to  biofuels & chemicals (H2, FT-fuels,  alcohols, olefins etc.); 2.Design & preparation of functional  catalysts; 3.Anions emission material and  applications.
  He initiated a way to produce free radicals of oxygen anion with strong oxidation by using synthesis porous materials. In recent years, he has been doing projects of basic and applied research on biomass energy sources and new functional materials, with the support by CAS Hundred Talents Program, 863 and 973 Programs. Main research findings: 1)invented  new  catalysts which are suitable for bio-oil reforming to produce hydrogen, preliminarily studied a new way to produce hydrogen through steam reforming of bio-oil under the electrochemical catalytic conditions; 2)studied and sifted a series of catalysts for steam reforming of bio-oil to produce hydrogen, and reliminarily studied the relations of catalysts structure and bio-oil conversion efficiency;3)high efficient conversion of bio-oil to FT-fuels,  alcohols, olefins etc.;4)succeeded in synthesis of O-, H-, OH-, F- emission materials, and synthesis of phenol through hydroxylation of benzene.        
Currently he is undertaking a 973 project “Basic Research on Conversion of Biomass into High-grade Fuel” , 863 project “Research and Development of Renewable Resources for Hydrogen Production from Biomass” and a project of NNSF “Basic Research on New Fluoride/Chloride Anion Save-Emission Materials ans the application in Semiconductor Etching”.
