Prof. Wang’s group has synthesized numerous extended pi-conjugated systems with novel properties, such as derivatives of completed fused oligoperylene bisimides and acene imides. His work has displayed not only a great creativity in the synthesis of exciting new molecules but also real insight in structure/properties relationships and also the application to organic electronics, especially in field effect transistors. Of particular note is the sucessful development of well-defined 1D single crystalline nano/micro ribbons via cooperation of multiple intramolecular interactions. He is the author or coauthor of more than 130 articles in leading chemistry journals. The publications have been cited more than 3000 times.
