What We Do

Polymer Photocatalysts

We design polymer photocatalysts for visible light photoredox reactions.

Porous Materials

We develop different strategies to introduce porosity, defined morphology, and specific functional groups into polymer materials for targeted applications.

Novel Reaction Discovery

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 …
