Porous Composites at the Interface
Welcome to LI Research Lab!
Our research interests focus on rational design, synthesis and fabrication of porous composite materials with hierarchy across different length scales. We strive to understand the physical and chemical properties of materials interfaces. By combining such knowledge with a library of synthetic tools from inorganic, organic and polymer chemistry, we aim to construct well-defined porous composite materials with desired atomic, mesoscopic and even macroscopic ordering which will subsequently aid us to decipher the structure-property relationship of these complex systems.
