Our research focuses on developing smart materials for 3D printing applications, elastic crystalline porous organic materials for energy and environmental related applications, and carbohydrate receptors for biological applications. The research scheme overlaps organic synthesis, crystal engineering, polymer synthesis, materials characterization, and 3D printing, with an emphasis on the design of supramolecular materials that are noncovalently assembled.
For perspective graduate students and postdocs: The Ke group will move to Washington University in St. Louis in January 2024. Link Perspective graduate students: We plan to take 4 graduate students in the fall 2024. Please apply through the WashU chemistry graduate program: link We no longer take graduate students from Dartmouth Chemistry Program. Postdocs: We have 3 postdoc openings in our WashU group (2 filled). One in the area of 3D printing polymers. The second one in the area of the development of porous materials and thin films. The third one in the area of the development of carbohydrate recognition receptors. Please reach out to Chenfeng via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
