Dr. Pengfei Cao is a polymer chemist with expert in the design and synthesis of polymeric materials with controlled architectures and defined properties for both fundamental studies and application investigation. His current research interest mainly focused on two directions: 1) high performance elastomer, like self-healing, adhesive elastomers and recyclable elastomers; 2) synthetic polymeric material for battery applications, like polymer binder, polymer electrolyte and polymeric protection layer. He leads or technically leads several DOE projects on synthetic polymeric materials for energy-related applications. Till now, he published 52 peer-reviewed journal publications (31 corresponding / 1st authored) and 2 two book chapters.
