Jeonghui Kim joins our group as a first-year graduate student. Jeonghui receives her BS and MS in Chemical Engineering from Inha University. She is interested in both halide perovskite and polymer materials. Welcome to the group!
Yuanhao passes his PhD qualifier exam. Congratulations!
Zitang (Tim)’s work entitled “Side-Chain Control of Topochemical Polymer Single Crystals with Tunable Elastic Modulus” has been published in Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. Congratulations!
In this work, we report a systematic study on the side chain functionalization of the bis(indandione) derivative system that can be polymerized under visible light. Precisely engineered side chains help organize the monomer crystals in a one-dimensional fashion to facilitate polymerization and improve mechanical properties. Read the story here.
Dr. Dou is selected for the prestigious 2022 AIChE Owens Corning Early Career Award. He will present a plenary lecture during the annual conference in Phoenix this fall. Congratulations!
We welcome Dr. Sung-Doo Baek, a research professor from Department of Materials Science and Engineering of Yonsei University, visiting us for 6 months. Dr. Baek is an expert on perovskite LEDs. Welcome to the group and look forward to working together!
