Research Interests

When I was in Fudan University, I focused on the synthesis of iridium complexes and their application in sensors for mercury (II) ion, homocysteine and cysteine and bio imaging in living cells. Now I am trying to synthesize zirconium based MOFs. I hope to find better ways to store hydrogen and explore other applications with new kinds of MOFs.
