Research Interest
We particularly focus on the electrochemical synthesis of novel organic electric materials. A special emphasis of our philosophy is how to understand polymer synthesis from electrochemical approaches. The electrosynthesis can enable the real-time monitoring of redox processes across a variety of length scales while producing complex polymers and materials fabrication. The most recent information about the current research activities of our group can be found in the group's publications.
