Research Interests:
Our research focuses on the design, synthesis and application of crystalline inorganic-organic hybrid functional materials, which will provides material foundation and technological support for the practical application of new type of crystalline materials. Many disciplines get involved: inorganic synthetic chemistry, coordination chemistry, cluster chemistry, photo-electrochemistry, metal-organic framework materials, zeolite materials, semiconductor materials. Currently, our research topics include:
1) Metal-organic framework materials with high-efficient photoluminescence or electroluminescence and their potential application for sensing small gas molecule
2) Zeolite-analog semiconducting materials for photoelectric device and photocatalysis
3) Host-guest materials based on semiconducting porous framework and mechanism on energy transfer and photon electron transfer.
4) New type of metal-chalcogenide-based nanoclusters with functionalized surface and precisely doped composition
5) Photoelectric device based on soluble chalcogenide-based molecular nanoclusters
6) Nanocluster-based composite white-light emitter
