Research Interest:

Solid-state Inorganic Materials Chemistry, X-ray Crystallography

Our research interest is focused on using hydrothermal reactions to create novel nanoporous metal phosphates, phosphites, silicates and germanates with pure inorganic and organic-inorganic hybrid framework topologies and new properties and functionality. Current research topics include:

(1)   Searching for extra-large channel structures and investigation into structure-related   properties

(2)   Synthesis of 3D chiral framework structures via solely achiral reagents

(3)   Intrinsic photoluminescence properties of nanoporous framework materials

(4)   Synthesis of lanthanide-free yellow and white phosphor materials
