Research Interest

Supramolecular polymer
Supramolecular polymers (SPs) is based on the non-covalent interactions among the monomers, and thus the polymerization and disassembly processes of SPs can occur reversibly, which makes SPs a new type of dynamic materials. Now, the related research works focus on the SPs formed by small organic molecules. However, the organic-inorganic hybrid SPs are rarely reported. In this project, we use polyoxometalates (POMs) as modular building blocks and modify POMs with non-covalent interaction groups. Through the recognition of the gourps, the modified POMs can be assembled into a new kind of clusto-supramolecular polymers (CSPs). By adjusting the hierarchical structure of the CSPs, we can optimize the synergistic properties among the different components of CSPs and explore the potential application of the CSPs in optical and electronic materials.
Graphene nanocomposite
Graphene is a new kind of two-dimensional carbon nanomaterials. It possesses large specific area, high mobility for carriers, high mechanical property and good chemical stability. The modification of graphene with different components is an effective approach to functionalize graphene. In this project, we plan to assemble functional polyoxometalates with graphene through non-covalent interactions to prepare a new nanocomposite, and then we will explore its potential application in catalysis, sensor and energy storage.
