Abstract

In this talk, I will present several novel strategies in my research to prepare new exotic materials, which I hope to be helpful to graduate students for doing their own research. The strategies are (1) the chemical reactions among organic micro/nano-particles in aqueous solution; (2) surfactant-thermal method to control the bulk crystal growth of chalcogenides and MOFs; (3) "clean" reaction to approach larger acenes; (4) "doping" oligoacenes with heteroatoms; (5) inorganic-organic hybrid nanoprobes for the detection and imaging of ROS/RNS species.
