Chenfeng Ke

Assistant Professor or Chemistry

The Ke group focuses on syntheses and applications of polymeric materials for storage/separation and 3D printing applications. The research scheme overlaps organic synthesis, crystal engineering, polymer synthesis, materials characterization, and 3D printing, with an emphasis on the design of polymeric materials that are noncovalently assembled.
