About the speaker
Dr. Lu received his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry at Sun Yat–sen University in 2002. After independent research at Sun Yat-sen University (2002-2005) and a visiting-scholar stint at the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (2005-2008), he joined Prof. Hong-Cai Zhou’s group at Texas A&M University. Since 2010, he has authored more than 20 peer-reviewed research papers on porous materials with over 1000 citations.
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and porous organic polymers (POPs) have garnered a significant amount of attention because of their tunable pore size and chemical environment. Numerous MOF/POP materials have been identified to exhibit exceptional porosity and tantalizing potential for gas storage/separation applications. In this talk, I will introduce these two advanced porous materials and our recent progress in two aspects. One is aiming for high surface area through rational design and their gas storage applications; the other is pore surface functionalization for efficient carbon capture.
