Dr. Tao Li earned his B.S. in Chemistry from Fudan University in 2008. He then moved to the University of Pittsburgh, where he completed his PhD studies on novel porous materials in 2013. After graduation, Dr. Li conducted his postdoctoral research in Polymer Physics in Prof. Ting Xu’s group at the University of California Berkeley for two years. In November 2015, he began his independent tenure-track Assistant Professor position at the newly established ShanghaiTech University and was later promoted to a tenured Associate Professor in June 2022. In February 2024, Dr. Li relocated to Australia and started his Lecturer position in the School of Physics, Chemistry, and Earth Science at the University of Adelaide.

Dr. Li's research focuses on the construction of well-defined porous composite materials to address pressing energy and environmental challenges. His notable contributions include: 1) the development of synthetic strategies for the construction of MOF@polymer core-shell composite particles; 2) the interfacial engineering and morphological control in mixed matrix membranes for gas separation; 3) pioneered MOF-based porous liquids and their design principles; 4) the synthetic strategies of hierarchical MOFs including core-shell MOFs, stratified MOFs, hollow MOFs, and yolk-shell MOFs etc. Dr. Li has published over 60 peer reviewed journal articles in internationally renowned journals such as Nature Materials, Nature Energy, Science Advances, Journal of the American Chemical Society, and Angewandte Chemie etc.


Composite materials are a group of materials that combine the unique properties of two or more constituent materials through hierarchical spatial arrangements. When this 'combination' is done properly, the resultant material can exhibit enhanced properties surpassing those of its individual components. Our research focuses on the rational design, synthesis and fabrication of porous composite materials, a particular type of composite that exhibits permanent porosity.  We use synthetic tools from chemistry and materials science along with physics principles to realize porous composite materials with well-defined interfaces and high structural ordering across different length scales. These materials will not only aid us in deciphering the structure-property relationship of these complex systems, but also address pressing energy and environmental challenges.


MOF - Polymer Interfaces


Porosity is a material property closely associated with rigidity.  Processability, however, is strongly related to ductility and flexibility. Benefiting from the rigid molecular construct through strong coordination bonds, most metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) gain their permanent porosity at the cost of material flexibility and processability. On the other hand, many polymers inherit excellent processability at the cost of porosity. Combining MOFs and polymers is a promising way to bring these two contradictory properties together.

This part of our research focuses on bridging the interface between MOFs and polymers. By doing so, we aim to 1) understand the fundamental aspects of MOF-polymer interfaces; 2) engineer composite materials interfaces to maximize material properties and 3) create well-defined hierarchical MOF-polymer composite materials with unique properties for energy and environmental related applications.

Hierarchical Porous Composites

The physical and chemical properties of a porous material are encoded not only at the molecular scale (atomic or molecular assembly) but also at the mesoscale. Hierarchical arrangement of porous materials at the mesoscale can often lead to the emergence of unexpected properties specific to such architecture.

The extreme diversity of metal-organic framework (MOF) and covalent-organic framework (COF) structures rooted in the endless combinations between organic linkers and metal building units. Nevertheless, for a given application, it is still challenging to find a MOF that meets all the requirements. By arranging different MOFs at a specific mesoscopic hierarchical order, it is possible to combine their merits that are usually contradictory to each other.

This part of research focuses on the fundamental understanding of the interfaces between MOFs and COFs. Meanwhile, we aim to develop new strategies to construct hierarchical MOF/COF composites and pursue their unique properties thereafter.

Gas Separation Membranes


Natural gas sweetening, H2/N2 separation, and olefin/parafin separation are some of the most energy intensive gas separation processes in industry. Practicing other separation such as CO2 removal from flue gas and direct air capture of CO2 may have a direct impact on mitigating global warming.

Compared to traditional separation technologies (e.g. cryogenic distillation and wet scrubbing), membrane gas separation using composite materials is an attractive alternative to considerably lower the energy consumption of these processes. The idea of compositing rigid crystalline porous fillers with soft polymeric matrix creates new possibilities to continuously improve membrane performance. However, the addition of a new phase also generates new problems including non-ideal filler distribution, interfacial compatibility and reduced mechanical properties, which complicate the rational design of materials.

We are interested in constructing well-defined composite membranes using various synthetic tools to simplify these problems and then subsequently find their structure-property correlations.
