Title:  “Supramolecular 3D-printing polymers and elastic porous organic crystals”

Nature long ago solved problems plaguing contemporary chemists with polydispersity and controlled synthesis at the nanoscale. The blueprint of life, DNA, is synthesized with high precision with the aid of multiple hydrogen-bonding interactions. Our research program aims to mimic the principle of nature-made materials and develop smart organic and polymeric materials through the organization of  multivalent hydrogen-bonding interactions to achieve properties that are currently beyond our grasp. In this talk, I will be presenting two major projects in my research group: (1) developing supramolecular 3D-printing materials that change their shapes under the influence of external stimuli, and (2) designing elastic crystalline porous organic frameworks that adsorb substrate with elastic expansion.
