Research

All naturally occurring polymers are produced through enzymatic catalysis, where stereo-, regio-, and chemoselective reactions proceed effectively within regulated and well-organized molecular-scale spaces. Inspired by these elegant operations in biological systems, our research group has been developing new methodologies to control the structures of polymers and nanomaterials using microporous compounds, such as MOF, COF, and organic cages. The use of their designable nanopores for materials synthesis can facilitate multi-level structural control over the products. In addition, construction of the host-guest nanocomposites provides unprecedented material platforms to accomplish many nanoscale functions.
