Research Interests

Develop novel polymer acceptors by tuning the backbone and side-chain for high performance all polymer solar cells, also focus on crosslinkable alcohol soluble conjugated polymers (CASCPs) containing oxetane/styrene groups and aminoalkyl groups in the side chains and used as highly efficient electron injection/extraction and transporting material for PLEDs and PSCs.
