Li, Xiaopeng Li, Xiaopeng Dr. Li’s research activities are focused on supramolecular chemistry based on coordination-driven self-assembly. His research group is centered on the design, synthesis and self-assembly of giant metallo-supramolecules with increasing complexity and diversity for the development of functional materials with high-performance.
Ma, Shengqian Ma, Shengqian The research of our group aims to engineering the nanospace of advanced porous materials (including metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), porous organic polymers (POPs), covalent organic frameworks (COFs), porous organic cages, microporous carbon materials) for energy/environmental/biological-related applications.
