My field of research is interested in designing porous materials and performing catalysis efficiently. To design a porous material, a fully aromatized reactions (fully conjugated polymers) are used or functionalized the carbon materials. Thermodynamically stable form of porous materials can be used in energy materials in a variety of ways. For one example, it can be applied to hydrogen production through water electrolysis, ammonia decomposition, or other organic chemical reactions (dehydrogenation) for a carbon-free economy.
