    By solving the Skorokhod equation for reflecting diffusion processes on a convex domain, gradient estimates for the associated Neumann semigroup are derived. As applications, functional/Harnack inequalities are established for the Neumann semigroup. When the domain is bounded, the gradient estimates are applied to the study of Riesz transforms and regularity of the inhomogeneous Neumann problems on convex domains.
