Our mission is to design, create and investigate functional polymers and carbons via simple chemistry and processing, and apply them to provide materials solutions. The team deals with both fundamentals in polymer science / carbon research, and the forefront challenges in materials science and engineering.

Currently, one of our focuses is the synthesis and materials application of poly(ionic liquid)s, a class of multifunctional polymers that are produced from ionic liquids. These polymers carry a traditional profile of polymers and simultaneously maintain some distinctive properties of ionic liquids, therefore representing a new concept to build up task-specific functional polymers. Our activities on this topic cover new polymer structures and properties, the colloidal particle systems, porous polymers and their membranes, and responsive materials.

Recently, our interest in polymer-derived hetero-atom-doped porous carbons for energy, environment and sustainability applications grows thicker and turns into our new research strength.
