Research Interests
  Coordination supramolecular chemistry and materials, focusing on clean environment and energy related metal-organic materials and nanoscience, including:
1. Self-assembly of metal-organic framworks (MOFs), metal-organic gels (MOGs) and metal-organic containers (MOCs)
2. Supramolecular catalysis in nanoscale coordination space
3. Supramolecular materials for adsorption/separation, luminescence and solar cell.
