Polymer-derived ceramics & Materials design


Polymer-derived ceramics (PDCs) with high temperature stability under harsh environmental conditions are important for the development of unconventional ceramic compositions with new functional properties. We design preceramic polymer precursors and explore systematically the functional properties in materials derived therefrom.


  • high temperature H2 separation
  • micro- and mesoporous ceramics
  • CO2 capture and storage
  • sensors for harsh conditions
  • photocatalysis
  • activation of CO2 and CH4
  • design of robust porous catalyst supports
