Research Experience and Accomplishments:
Researches are focused on polymer nanoscience and nanotechnology, which result in publications in high quality journals, such as Angew. Chem. Int. Ed.、Nano Lett., Adv. Mater., Adv. Funt. Mater., Small, J. Mater. Chem,. Eur. J. Chem., etc and have been highlighted as the journal cover or feature news. These works have received citations more than 300 times, and have generated 3 patents.
Developed the first nanosensor exclusively based on polymers. This nanosensor possesses not only the advantages from polymer materials, such as low cost, high flexibility and easy to process, but also advantages from nanosensors, such as high sensitivity, low detection limit and low power assumption. Therefore, it is very promising for real applications. Based on this work, all-polymer nano-nose for gas sensing, all-polymer nano-tongue for solute sensing and all-polymer nano-bio-sensor for biological molecule sensing can be further developed.
Developed for the first time biopolymer nanofibers containing multiple biological molecules. This possesses the unique property of controlling the release of multiple proteins, which is utilized by Prof. Micheal Young from Schepens eye research
Developed the purest ever Nafion nanofiber (99.9%). Due to the alignment of Nafion nanostructures inside nanofiber, it is super proton conductive (1.5S/cm). This super proton conductive high purity Nafion nanofiber can be used not only as humidity nanosensor, but also as the materials for the next generation proton exchange membrane. Moreover, due to its transparency in water, it is used by Prof. George Whitesides of Harvard Uninversity to develop the next generation transparent three dimensional tissue engineering scaffold.
