This seminar will be held virtually on Zoom.

Molecular engineering of new materials holds promise for improving human health, safety, efficiency, and quality of life. This presentation will describe strategies for molecular engineering of stimuli-responsive multifunctional materials. The first part of the presentation will describe several approaches for design, synthesis, and device integration of two-dimensional (2D) conductive metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs) to create devices with promising utility in electroanalysis. An emphasis will be placed on the fundamental understanding and molecular design of modular structure–property relationships within this class of 2D materials. The second part of this talk will introduce a novel approach to designing materials for temporary adhesion, which relies on the use of sublimable molecular solids, with promising utility in the fabrication of microelectronic devices. Taken together, these research thrusts will demonstrate how molecular-level features within solid state materials can be used to tune their stimuli-responsive function.
