Our group focuses on the synthesis and application of orgnaic-inorganic hybrid materials.

A typical TEM picture of the material we synthesized


The strategies involve the supramolecular synthesis of periodic mesoporous organosilicas, sol-gel synthesis of hybrid organic-inorganic armorphous materials, and surface organo-metallic synthesis of organometallic complex functionalized materials as well.
