■Title
"Design and Functional Exploration of Two-Dimensional Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs)"

■Abstract
Professor Donglin Jiang was recognized by his high originality, creativity and productivity in the research on Design and Functional Exploration of Two-Dimensional Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs). Covalent organic frameworks are a class of crystalline porous polymer that enables atomically precise integration of organic units into ordered structures. Distinct from traditional polymers that are difficult in the control over the high-order structure, COFs are capable of predesigning both primary and high-order structures and enable the synthetic control over their high-order structures. As fully designable synthetic polymers, COFs have recently emerged as a molecular platform for structural and functional designs. Over the past years, professor Jiang and his group have focused on establishing the design principle, exploring synthetic reactions, elucidating functions and extending to applications. These works have paved the base of the field and led the development of the field. Especially, his findings of semiconduction, photofunctions, catalysis, and other important functions reveal the great potential of COFs as innovative materials platform for challenging environmental and energy issues.
