Overview Figure
  • Our group is working on the design and synthesis of diverse edge-selectively functionalized graphene nanoplatelets (EFGnPs) and Fused Aromatic Networks (FANs). Such materials will be applied in many fields such as electrochemistry, gas storage and energy materials.
  • Graphene as a representative carbon material have captured broad interest in the materials science, due to its extraordinary set of properties. Nevertheless, graphene has some limitations such as difficulty in processability, lack of multi-functionality and vanishing band-gap. Therefore, our group developed new edge-selectively functionalized graphene nanoplatelets by ball-milling methods to overcome those kinds of limitations.
  • Fused Aromatic Networks (FANs) are a class of ordered porous polymers which are integration of organic building units into extended structures. FANs structures are composed of fused aromatic rings without single bond connectivity and it enables formation of very stable structures. Because of their design flexibility and skeleton or pores manipulability, FANs can be a good platform in materials science fields.
  • The undergraduate, graduate students, postdoctoral and researcher are working on various research fields including carbon materials, materials science, electrochemistry and organic synthesis.
