Electron Donors and Acceptors, Tailor-Made

Welcome to Yi Liu’s group at the Molecular Foundry. Our research focuses on the development of nanostructured electronic materials through the design, synthesis and manipulation of tailor-made molecular constituents. Some specific interests are directed towards 1) organic-inorganic heteromaterial frameworks as next generation optoelectronic materials, 2) self-assembly of porous 2D and 3D framework materials with controlled structure and engineered function, and 3) design and synthesis of new organic semiconductors for organic electronics, and fundamental understanding of the associated electronic processes.
