    Research and Interests


    Our research deals with the synthesis and characterization of novel polycyclic aromatic materials such as carbon nanotube belts and graphene ribbons. We are developing new synthetic reactions to construct these architectures, and we are characterizing their noncovalent supramolecular properties.
