 Project objective

Inorganic polymers are of widespread interest as a result of their useful combination of physical and chemical properties, which offer exciting opportunities for their use as advanced materials for many different applications. In the proposed research state-of-the-art strategies worked out in organic catalysis will be applied for the first time to main group substrates to form main group element-element (specifically Si–O and PV–O) bonds, targeting efficient new routes to inorganic polymers that involve mild reaction conditions and permit microstructure control. Once formed, the new polymeric materials will be characterized in detail and potential applications explored. To achieve these objectives Dr. Lipeng Wu, an exceptionally talented young scientist from China who performed his Ph.D. and postdoc in top organic catalysis groups in Germany (Matthias Beller, Rostock) and the USA (F. Dean Toste, UC Berkeley), will work in the internationally leading research group of Prof. Ian Manners (Bristol, UK) with expertise in catalysis with main group substrates, inorganic polymers, and polymer materials science. Armed with the new knowledge and experience gained, following the fellowship Dr. Wu aims to obtain an academic position in China where catalysis with main group compounds and inorganic polymers play a key role.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "LWIMT" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
