报告题目：Task-Specific Design and Functionalization of Advanced Porous Organic Polymers for Water Purification
Porous organic polymers (POPs) both amorphous and crystalline represent an emerging class of nanoporous materials, and they feature robust covalent framework structures with high water and chemical stability. This, together with their high surface areas and tunable pore sizes, makes them hold promise for a variety of applications. We will demonstrate how POPs can be task-specific designed and functionalized via either de novo synthesis or stepwise post-synthetic modification for applications in water purification including oil spill cleanup, heavy metal removal, and nuclear waste treatment.
Shengqian Ma obtained his B.S. degree from Jilin University, China in 2003, and graduated from Miami University (Ohio) with a Ph.D. degree in 2008. After finishing two-year Director’s Postdoctoral Fellowship at Argonne National Laboratory, he joined the Department of Chemistry at University of South Florida (USF) as an Assistant Professor in August 2010. He was promoted to an Associate Professor with early tenure in 2015and to a Full Professor in 2018.
He received the USFFaculty Outstanding Research Achievement Awardin 2015 and the USFOutstanding Faculty Awardin 2018. He is the recipient of 2014NSF CAREER Awardand has been selected as the Thomson ReutersHighly Cited Researcherin 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018; he was also awarded theIUPAC-2015 Young Chemist Travel Awardand the2009 IUPAC Prize for Young Chemistsfrom International Union of Pure & Applied Chemistry (IUPAC); he received theYoung Investigator Awardfrom American Chemical Society (ACS) Division of Inorganic Chemistry and theDirector’s Postdoctoral Fellowshipfrom Argonne National Laboratory in 2008 as well.
His current research interest focuses on the development of functional porous materials including metal-organic frameworks (MOFs),covalent organic frameworks (COFs),porous organic polymers (POPs), and microporous carbon materials for energy, biological, environmental-related applications. He has published more than 180 papers (over 140 since independent career) with the total citations over 18000 and the H-index of 66.
