Nanoscience • Supramolecular chemistry • Materials science
The Kang Group applies the tool of synthetic chemistry and supramolecular chemistry to the design of novel materials that address fundamental and social issues in energy and health. We are particularly interested in the development of state of the art smart molecules and materials for the use in soft electronics.
Designer dynamic materials
i) Covalent synthesis
ii) Non-covalent synthesis
(Engineering at molecular level)
Smart polymer matrix
Let's Imagine, Design and Make New Materials!!!
i) High Performance Polymeric Materials
Tough self-healing material
Anisotropic material, Stimuli responsive material
ii) Dynamic Soft Electronics (Future Soft Electronics)
Pediatric electronic medicine
Dynamic cuff electrode in growing organism
Tough Self-healing Wearable electronics
We will solve fundamental challenges encountered in today’s soft electronics and seek new opportunities in bioelectronics and energy storage applications.
