Research Area

The core topic of our research is to design and synthesize nanostructured porous materials and to develop nanoengineered platforms for various interdisciplinary applications. The driving force behind our research topic is to advance current technological solutions of urgent issues from different areas such as energy gas storage, greenhouse gases capture, energy efficiency improvements, biomolecular detection, and controlled drug delivery. Particularly, metal-organic frameworks (also called porous coordination polymers) and carbon nanotubes are our main focus on the stage of material design.
