Boron-doped Conjugated Oligomers, Polymers, and PAHs: We pursue new conjugated hybrid materials for applications in organic electronics and as luminescent sensory materials.
Stimuli-Responsive and Supramolecular Materials: We utilize new reversible Lewis acid-base interactions, hydrogen bonding, and metal ligand coordination to generate "smart" supramolecular polymers and polymer networks.
Sustainable Chemistry: We develop polymer-supported Lewis acids and "frustrated" Lewis pairs (FLPs) for catalysis applications.
Chiral Lewis Acids and Lewis Pairs: We investigate planar chiral ferrocenes that are functionalized with Lewis acid/base sites for stereoselective synthesis.
