Research interests:

Ø  In order to promote building blocks of supramolecular assembly from molecular aggregates into bulk materials, we focused on 4D print a three-dimensional ordered structure, and make early research about supramolecular assembly beyond meso-/macroscopic level and the diffusion process of building blocks, as well as controllable motion of meso-/macro- scaled objects.

Ø  Diffusion process of meso-/macroscopic building blocks: in supramolecular assembly of building blocks with feature size at nanoscale and molecular level, molecular thermal motion or brownian motion could drive the building blocks and make them collide; however, when the feature size is increased above 10 um, the molecular thermal motion is not sufficient to drive building blocks. Therefore, we proposed the opinion that locomotion of building blocks is one of the key factors to realize meso-/macroscopic supramolecular assembly. To handle this issue, we applied magnetic field, chemical power etc. to locomote meso-/macroscopic building blocks in a controlled way, to reach the desired locations suitable for assembly; we obtained 2D ordered structures and provided a novel strategy for developing self-assembled 3D functional structures.  (Adv. Mater. 2009, 21, 1927; Adv. Mater. 2010, 22, 5125; Adv. Mater. 2013, 25, 2915; Adv. Mater. 2013, DOI: 10.1002/adma.201302187; Langmuir 2011, 27, 6559; Small 2013, 9, 2509; Small 2013, DOI: 10.1002/smll.201302132; J. Mater. Chem. A, 2013, 1, 5886).

Ø  Surface modification and assembly of meso-/macroscopic building blocks: In order to handle the problem that the increased feature size of building blocks may lead to the failure of assembly, we proposed the concept of flexible spacing coating and realized selective assembly of building blocks; through introducing highly compeitive guest molecules to disassemble the assembled strucutes, we confirmed the hypothesis that the flexible spacing coating works in a multivalency mechanism. In terms of surface modification, we first applied intensified process in chemical engineering to study the diffusion process in the construction of polyelectrolte multilayers; taking classical equations in chemical engineering, we described the diffusion process in interfacial assembly and the effects of energy barrier on the surface morphology of films in a semi-quantified way. We have largely increased the assembly efficiency and improved the film quality by using this method (Langmuir 2012, 28, 9849; Ind. Eng. Chem. Res. 2013, 37, 13393; Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys. 2013, 15, 15172). We have developed a post-infiltration and photocrosslinking method through introducing a bifunctional crosslinkable small molecule to stabilize the multilayer films (Langmuir 2012, 28, 7096; J. Mater. Chem. A 2013, 1, 11329; RSC Adv 2013, DOI:. 10.1039/C3RA45646C); we presented a simple method to immobilize Cucurbituril[8] efficiently onto surfaces (Chem. Commun. 2013, 8093); we proposed and developed a concept of surface imprinted polyelectrolyte multilayer and realized the imprinting and separation of charged small molecules in stabilized polyelectrolyte films (ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces 2013, 5, 8308).
