Zhengtao Xu’s group closely integrates molecular synthesis and the study of porous framework materials (MOF, COF and open cage compounds) for versatile sensing, separation, catalysis and electronic applications. We realize that, the extremely powerful molecular synthetic methods of modern chemistry, once mobilized in the study of open framework systems, is bound to open up broad areas of research in materials science. For example, our long-standing pursuit across framework engineering and organic synthesis has opened up the field of sulfur-equipped porous frameworks (SPF), wherein the powerful sulfur functions are starting to usher in a broad horizon of research in catalysis, semiconductors, sensors, heavy metal removal, energy storage and proton conductivity.
