2024 CME NASA Symposium Abstract

Highlight factors that influence how to select dopants to be paired with various materials. I will also discuss preliminary studies on doping materials with chiral dopants and doping chiral materials with an achiral dopant.



2021 CME NASA Symposium Abstract

Three vignettes about covalent organic frameworks (COFs) will be described. In the first study we have found that imine-based two-dimensional (2D) COFs can form more rapidly than previously realized, essentially within a few minutes, and reach peak crystallinity within several hours. In a second study we identified a covalent organic framework (COF) that responds rapidly to the presence of solvent vapor through a passively reversible tautomerization. In a third study, we have synthesized a zinc-porphyrin diacetylide based 2D COF and examined it structural, optical and electronic properties.
