Research Interests

Our group tackles interesting problems at the interface of organic chemistry and materials science by employing the toolbox of synthetic and physical organic chemistry. Currently, our lab focuses on three major areas: 1) revising synthesis of traditional conjugated chromophores via new but reliable synthetic methodology, and applying findings into develop new precursors and semiconducting polymers; 2) synthesis and characterization of novel polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) materials, and their application into Organic Field-Effect Transistors (OFET) and Organic Photovoltaics (OPV); 3) development of novel small molecules and study their conductance by Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM) Break Junction Technology.
