New Paper “CO2-Triggered Switchable Hydrophilicity of Heterogeneous Conjugated Polymer Photocatalyst for Enhanced Catalytic Activity in Water” in Angewandte Chemie
What We Do
We design polymer photocatalysts for visible light photoredox reactions.
We develop different strategies to introduce porosity, defined morphology, and specific functional groups into polymer materials for targeted applications.
Our goal is to identify new photocatalyzable reactions from the scope of organic redox reactions.
The application of our photocatalysts is versatile: fine chemistry, artificial photosynthesis, CO2 Reduction, water treatment, synthetic biology …
