Shi-Qiang “SQ” Wang

Welcome to SQ’s Chem Universe

I’m working on metal-organic materials (PCPs/PCNs/MOFs) for a better world.

About Myself


I am currently a Research Fellow in the Advanced Porous Materials Group (PI: A/Prof. Dan Zhao) at the National University of Singapore (NUS) and my research will focus on air dehumidification and hydrocarbon separations. Before moving to NUS, I did my PhD (2016.09-2020.06) and Postdoc (2020.08-2022.03) in the Crystal Engineering Research Group (PI: Prof. Michael Zaworotko) at the University of Limerick (UL). My PhD research interest is crystal engineering of metal-organic materials (PCPs/PCNs/MOFs) for storage and separation of gases, vapors and liquids. In particular, a platform of square lattice (sql) coordination networks are developed as Switching Adsorbent Layered Materials (SALMAs) for C2H2 storage, CH4 purification and C8 aromatics separation. For more details, please visit my CV page.
