Research Description

Our research program involves the use of organic synthesis for the design, development, and application of new concepts in macromolecular, supramolecular, and materials chemistry. Our research efforts span a number of areas in the chemical sciences and include studies of (a) materials for solar energy conversion, (b) macromolecular systems that undergo structural changes in response to visible light and other stimuli, and (c) the influence of dendritic components of nanoscopic systems on phonic and electronic properties of materials.
