of organic, organometallic, polymer and materials chemistry. Areas of current interest include:
Controlled Free Radical Polymerization of Functional Monomers
Self-assembly of Organoboron Block Copolymer and Star Polymers
Chemical Sensors based on Luminescent Polymers
New Conjugated Materials
for Optoelectronic Devices
Polymer-supported Redox-active Metal Complexes
Supramolecular Chemistry of Organocopper Complexes
Multidentate Lewis Acids for Anion Recognition
Planar Chiral Lewis Acids and Frustrated Lewis Pairs in Stereoselective Synthesis.
