Aromatic compounds are potentially useful as functional electronic materials. However, the design and control of three-dimensional molecular assembly are still very difficult, especially for the crystal engineering of organic molecules. This group aims to create novel topological and reticular organic structures by using synthetic organic chemistry and geometric insight. To achieve our purpose, this group will start electron-diffraction crystallography (MicroED) for the rapid structure determination of three-dimensional covalent organic frameworks.
