Research interests are focused on functional coordination chemistry and organometallic chemistry, including: (1) Multifunctional materials based on molecular conductors, such as molecular magnetic semiconductors and molecular electronic materials; (2) Spin-based molecular electronics, such as single molecule magnets, single chain magnets, and spin crossover materials; (3) Organic light-emitting diodes based on phosphorescent Ir(III) complexes.
(1) Functional Metal−Organic Frameworks based on redox-active tetrathiafulvalene and its derivatives.
(2) Molecular conductors and molecular wires.
(3) Single-molecule magnets and single-chain magnets based on organic-ligand capped tricyano- or tetracyanometalates, which may have applications in high-density information storage, quantum computingor spin-based molecular electronics.
(4) Molecular magnetic semiconductors and organic spintronics.
