Research Area

Our research group has mainly been engaged in soft matter gel for a long time. Since 2003, the research has been guided by the direction of ordering, composition and intelligentization, based on the functionalization and intellectualization of nanocomposite hydrogel, aimed to increase important performance, such as high strength, high toughness, fast response, reversible adsorption catalysis, excellent cell compatibility and so on, and as well as future application in tissue engineering, textile printing, dyeing, home, optical sensing. Actually, we have combined zero dimensional microgel, one-dimensional gel fiber, two-dimensional gel membrane, three-dimensional block gel with environmental chemical eningeering, drug, fiber, tissue engineering, microorganism, photoelectric devices and so on. Now 0D multi responsive nano composite microgel, 1D structure color hydrogel fiber, 2D hydrogel membrane sensor and 3D cell sheet desorbed hydrogel have been constructed from the angle of method, material optimization and morphological control. The internal relationship of chain structure, aggregation structure, polymerization method, raw material properties and intelligence gel morphology and response were systematically studied. It is clear that the inherent rule of "structure, shape and performance" has been analyzed systematically. Our group has established a wide range of cooperation with Yen Wei’s group of Tsinghua University, Sanford Asher’s group of University of Pittsburgh and Liusheng Zha’s group of Donghua University.

Main Project

Qingsong Zhang has been undertaking and leading nearly 13 of research projects supported by the National Natural Science Foundation, the Tianjin Municipal Natural Science Foundation, Tianjin Science and Technology Popularization Project, and horizontal projects. In the field of application, the industrialization of soft and wet polymer materials in the field of daily use is being carried out, such as intelligent cooling hydrogel matress, shoe insole, and fire cooling clothing.

Academic papers and invention patents
