Designed Synthesis of Nanostructured Porous Materials

Prof. Dapeng Cao (曹达鹏)

Time:March.16.2017.10:00-11:00 am

Place:BUCT Library Center Conference Room

We present the designing scheme of novel materials by using the multiscale simulation method of combining the first-principles calculation and molecular simluation.  By using the multiscale simulation method, a series of novel materials are designed. These materials include new carbon allotrope - diamondyne, porous organic polymers, Li-doped covalent organic frameworks (COFs), N-doped graphene etc Furthermore, we also used experiments to synthesize some theoretically designed materials to confirm the multiscale simulation results, which provides a useful strategy for the designed synthesis of new materials.  

Dapeng Cao is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC), and a Professor and Director of the Division of Molecular and Materials Simulation, State Key Laboratory of Organic-Inorganic Composites at Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT) (2005- ). He received his Ph D from BUCT in 2002, and was a research scientist at NanoMaterials Technology Pte Ltd in Singapore (2002-2003) and a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California at Riverside (2003-2005). His research interests are focused on the designed synthesis and applications of functional materials, including porous luminescent polymers and energy materials related to fuel cells and supercapacitors. Currently, he is the Editorial Board Members of Scientific Reports, ISRN Chemical Engineering and American of Macromolecular Science. He has published more than two hundred articles in journals such as J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. and Adv. Mater.
