1. About me/ Om mig (70-100 words)

Summarise your background to the extent you are comfortable with. May include, but is not limited to: country of origin, when you came to Sweden/SU, acquired degrees and more.

I was born in Gansu, CHINA on June 9, 1988. I obtained my PhD from Lanzhou University (December, 2018), under the supervision of Prof. Wei Wang. During that time, my work mainly focused on the designed synthesis and unique application of radical-embedded covalent organic frameworks (COFs). In April, 2019, I came to Sweden and joined Prof. Jiayin Yuan’s group as a post doctoral fellow in Stockholm University.

 2. Research/ Forskning (10-30 words)

Summarise your main topic/s.

Now my work mainly focuses on the fabrication of organic cages and exploration of their applications.

 3. On-going projects/ Pågående project (100-200 words)

Describe your current and past projects/ research with date, title and funding agency.

Design, synthesis, characterization of radical covalent organic frameworks (COFs) and exploring their applications for dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) and catalysis. By taking advantage of the structural uniqueness of COFs, we explore a new application for these agile materials as efficient DNP agents. For this purpose, a series of proxyl-radical-embedded COFs, PR(x)-COFs, have been bottom-up-constructed with highly ordered crystalline structures and large BET surface areas. The covalent reticulation, homogeneous distribution, and rigid fixation of proxyl radicals with controlled concentrations are all advantageous for DNP enhancement.

Fabrication of organic cages with different functional groups and exploration of their applications as stimuli-responsive materials.
