Mingdi Yan

Welcome to Yan Research Laboratory!

We belong to the Organic Chemistry Division in the Department of Chemistry. Our research lies at the interface of chemistry, nanomaterials, and nanomedicine. We apply our skills in synthetic chemistry to develop new reactions and functionalize carbon materials including graphene. We make functional nanomaterials, and apply them in applications including antimicrobial nanomaterials and drug delivery.
