In our research group, we focus on the elaboration of organic cages and catenated cages with well-defined topology, and their hierarchical self-assembly for the search of emerging supramolecular materials with novel properties.
Research Themes 1. Dissymmetric cages, their polymerization and self-assembly 2. Novel desgin and synthetic strategies of catenated cages 3. Hierarchical self-assembly of monomeric cages and catenated cages
We are building up a highly interdisciplinary, enthusiastic yet friendly atmosphere within the research group, and we collaborate with research groups from the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, other departments at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and other research groups at other institutions around the world.
