Polymeric materials have been pervasively applied in our daily lives, consequently improving the way we live. Addressing new challenges of this area requires the interdisciplinary application of organic synthesis, polymer chemistry and physics, and chemical engineering, etc. Our research group strives to develop creative methods in polymer synthesis, and access novel functional materials to solve problems at the interface of energy, environment and intelligent manufacturing. The activities involve:
1) exploration of novel polymerization methodologies toward controlled synthesis of polymers.
2) development of continuous-flow technologies to facilitate automated and efficient polymer production.
3) engineering of high-performance materials via the combination of polymer chemistry and organic synthesis.
