Chiral Nanocarbons

Dr. Wenhiu Niu

Chiral nanocarbons have attracted growing attention due to their exotic 3D structure, high intramolecular strain, inherent chirality, dynamic behavior, intriguing optoelectronic properties as well as enhanced solubility in liquid phase. We are interested in constructing the longitudinal extended and lateral extended chiral nanocarbons with high-order helicene embedded. Our goal specifically focuses on developing novel synthetic methods that offer both high selectivity and efficiency. Taking advantage of chiral materials with diverse structure, we are fascinated to discovery their structure-chiroptical property relationship, and potential applications in chiral induced spin selectivity effect and quantum computing materials.
