I. Mixed Valence Transition Metal Oxides (MVTMO)

  • Development of simple route to synthesize mixed-valence transition-metal oxides (MVTMO).

  • Study optoelectronic and electronic properties of the MVTMO through the change of composition of mixed-valence transition metals.

  • Synthesize MVTMO/polymer composites for smart systems.  

  • Investigation of the MVTMO's heterogeneous catalytic activities. 

  II. Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for energy-related applications using their catalytic activities

  • Challenges for synthesizing MOFs having good charge mobility to enhance MOF's catalytic activities and charge transport abilities. 

  • Development MOFs based novel electro- or photoelectro-chemical energy devices. 



  III. Molecular networks of an organometallic complex with metal-metal bonds

  • Expansion of metal-metal bonds to form a massive network for efficient catalysts or novel devices.
