Huaping Xu

Professor in Department of Chemistry, Tsinghua University


Speaker

Huaping Xu, born in 1978, received his Bachelor degree in 2001 and Ph. D. degree in 2006 in Jilin University, China, under the supervision of Prof. Xi Zhang. During 2004-2005, he worked as an exchange student in University of Leuven, Belgium. In 2006, he joined Prof. David N. Reinhoudt and Prof. Jurriaan Huskens’s group at University of Twente, the Netherlands as a post-doc. Since July 2008, he has worked at Department of Chemistry, Tsinghua University, China. He was promoted to full professor in 2014. In 2014, he received the Natural Science Fund for Outstanding Young Scholars from NSFC. In 2017, he was enrolled in Leading Talent of National High-level personnel of special support program ("people plan"). He has served for Associate Editor of ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering since January 2017. His current research is focused on selenium/tellurium-containing polymers.

Title:

Dynamic Responsive Chemistry of Selenium-containing Polymers

Abstract:

Selenium is a semimetallic element lying in the group XVI of the periodic table with its chemical properties resembling sulfur. But owing to its relatively low electronegativity and large atomic radius comparing with sulfur, selenium also shows unique properties. This feature endows selenium-containing compounds with high reactivity and sensitivity. Although organic selenium chemistry has been developing very fast, the success introducing of selenium into polymer science is rather scarce. Fortunately, we have seen a drastic rising trend in the area of selenium-containing polymer for the past decade. In my talk, the synthetic routes of selenium-containing polymers were summarized, their unique stimuli-responsive properties were elaborated, together with their diverse applications in the field of adaptive and biomedical materials.
