Lu works on synthesizing precise acid- and ion-containing polyethylenes via acyclic diene metathesis (ADMET) and post hydrogenation reaction. The rheological and conductivity properties of the precise polymers were also studied after synthesis. Besides, the crystal structures of solution-grown precise acid-and ion-containing polyethylenes’ single crystals were investigated via AFM, Electron Diffraction, and Raman.
Outside of work, Lu enjoys yoga and watching movies.
