Professor Qingzheng Yang
University of Liverpool
My research focuses on molecular design and synthesis of organic compounds
with interesting photophysical and/or photochemical properties that may have
potential applications in the construction of photoresponsive supramolecular
materials, assemblies with high energy transfer efficiency and as novel fluorescent
probes for biomolecules. We are particularly interested in the design, studies and
applications of smart functional materials and biomaterials based on selfassembly.
The current projects in my lab include: 1) preparation of the stiffstilbene
derived supramolecular polymers whose self-assembly behaviour and
physical properties can be regulated by light; 2) studying the mechanosensing
behavior of the anthracene dimers in polymer materials; 3) developing new
luminescent materials based on the self-assemblies of chromophores for
bioimaging and biosensing.
