Sustainable chemistry is an essential part of sustainable development based on the application of ecological principles in chemical production and by shaping product design, manufacturing, consumption of resources, health and safety at work, and innovation based on clear sustainability criteria. With their flexibility or even stretchability, wearable devices could be attached to the human body to achieve some ambitious goals such as personal health monitoring, advanced diagnosis and other medical treatments. Unfortunately, many of flexible and wearable devices or sensors still contain non-biocompatible plastics or toxic heavy metals. My group has been focused on sustainable skin-inspired luminescent materials including BN-embedded hybrid materials, supramolecular organic frameworks, and solution-processable microporous polymers.
