We are enthusiastic about designing, creating, and playing exotic small molecules and large polymers with unusual properties and behaviors.
Our collaborative work with the Craig and Martinez groups on understanding the mechanochemistry of ladder-type mechanophores is published in JACS - Congratulations to Matias and team!
Our collaborative work with the Qin group on discovering an unprecedented loop-in behavior of polyelectrolyte coacervation is published in Sci. Adv. - Congratulations to Junzhe and team!
Our collaborative work with the Zheng group on developing B/polymer composites is published in ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces - Congratulations to Yue and team!
New group photo taken after 2 years since the last pre-covid one!
Congratulations to Jinghui on publishing his work on a robust (almost) hydrocarbon polymer that can be transformed into acid-degradable polymer under mechanical stress!
Hearty welcome for 1st year student Francesca and Erica to officially join the group!
Congratulations to Jinghui and Dan for winning the prestigious :) 2020 Xia Group Awards!
