Prof. Xinliang Feng
Prof. Feng is the head of the Chair of Molecular Functional Materials at Technische Universität Dresden. He received his Bachelor’s degree in analytic chemistry in 2001 and Master’s degree in organic chemistry in 2004. Then he joined the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research for PhD thesis, where he obtained his PhD degree in April 2008. In December 2007, he was appointed as a group leader at the Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research, and in 2012, he became a distinguished group leader. His current scientific interests include organic synthetic methodology in aromatic coupling reactions; organic synthesis of pi-conjugated system; bottom-up synthesis and top-down fabrication of graphene nanoribbons in the solution and on the surface; 2D conjugated polymers and supramolecular polymers for optoelectronic applications; graphene-based 2D nanomaterials and low-dimensional nanostructured functional as well as hybrid materials for energy storage and conversion; mesoporous covalent-bonding organic frameworks and nanostructured functional carbon materials for energy storage and conversion; new energy devices and technologies.
