About this book


This book is an up-to-date text covering topics in utilizing hydrogen bonding for constructing functional architectures and supramolecular materials. The first chapter addresses the control of photo-induced electron and energy transfer. The second chapter summarizes the formation of nano-porous materials. The following two chapters introduce self-assembled gels, many of which exhibit unique functions. Other chapters cover the advances in supramolecular liquid crystals and the versatility of hydrogen bonding in tuning/improving the properties and performance of materials.

This book is designed to bring together in a single volume the most important and active fields of hydrogen bonding strategy for designing supramolecular materials. The book will be a valuable resource for graduates and researchers working in the fields of supramolecular chemistry and materials sciences.

About the editors

Zhan-Ting Li was born in China in 1966. He received his BS in 1985 from Zhengzhou University and his PhD in organic fluorine chemistry in 1992 under the direction of Prof. Qing-Yun Chen at the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry (SIOC), Chinese Academy of Sciences. Following postdoctoral research stays with Prof. Jan Becher at the University of South Denmark and Prof. Steven C. Zimmerman at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, he served as an Associate Professor and later Full Professor at the SIOC (1996-2010). In 2010, he switched to his present position as a Full Professor at the Department of Chemistry, Fudan University in Shanghai. Prof. Li has co-authored more than 190 peer-reviewed papers and 10 book chapters. His research interests include hydrogen bonding-mediated biomimetic structures and molecular recognition, and conjugated and self-assembled porous structures and functions.

Li-Zhu Wu received her BS from Lanzhou University (1990) and PhD from the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry (TIPC), Chinese Academy of Sciences (1995) under the direction of Prof. Chen-Ho Tung. She worked as a postdoctoral researcher with Prof. Chi-Ming Che at the University of Hong Kong (1997-1998) and has been a Full Professor at the TIPC since 1998. Prof. Wu has published over 200 research papers, reviews and book chapters. Her research focuses on photochemical conversion, including artificial photosynthesis, visible light-catalysis for efficient and large-scale organic synthesis, photoinduced electron transfer, and energy transfer and chemical reactions in supramolecular systems. She is currently a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of Inorganic Chemistry and Langmuir of ACS.
