主题：A Future for Carbon Nanostructures
In this presentation, I will firstly introduce the rationale for using bottom-up chemistry for the precise synthesis of various graphene nanostructures ranging from arm-chair to zig-zag edge structures. In addition to the planar nanocarbons, curved carbon nanostructures as promising next-generation carbon materials will be next discussed. The curvature has important ramifications on the inherent physical behavior of carbon materials. Third, the implementation of combinations of heteroatoms, such as nitrogen and boron, for example substituting a C=C unit with an isoelectronic B-N moiety or the NBN-fragment at the zig-zag edges which can be selectively oxidized into the radical cation, will be presented. Finally, to bridge the molecules and devices, structurally well-defined graphene nanoribbons will be particularly introduced. Over the past few years, a variety of GNRs with different width and edge structures have been accessed by solution-phase and on-surface syntheses, as well as CVD-based method, which are essential for the development of future graphene-based nanoelectronics and spintronics.
Xinliang Feng received his Bachelor degree in analytic chemistry in 2001 and Master degree in organic chemistry in 2004. Then he joined Prof. Klaus Müllen's group at 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 at the Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research.
His current scientific interests include graphene, two-dimensional nanomaterials, organic conjugated materials, and carbon-rich molecules and materials for electronic and energy-related applications. He has published more than 390 research articles which have attracted more than 27500 citations with H-index of 77.
He has been awarded several prestigious prizes such as IUPAC Prize for Young Chemists (2009), Finalist of 3rd European Young Chemist Award, European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant Award (2012), Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship Award (2013), ChemComm Emerging Investigator Lectureship (2014), Highly Cited Researcher (Thomson Reuters, 2014, 2015 and 2016), Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC, 2014). He is an Advisory Board Member for Advanced Materials, Journal of Materials Chemistry A, ChemNanoMat, Energy Storage Materials, Small Methods and Chemistry -An Asian Journal. He is also one of the Deputy Leaders for European communitys pilot project Graphene Flagship, Head of ESF Young Research Group "Graphene Center Dresden", and Working Package Leader of WP Functional Foams & Coatings of GRAPHENE FLAGSHIP.
