Professor Jiangwei Zhang is an assistant research fellow of the State Key Laboratory of Catalysis and Gold Catalysis Research Center at the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). He is also the program director of the National Natural Science Foundation of China. He is a specialist in crystallography and nanocluster synthesis.
He is the project leader of the National Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory (NSRL) and the Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF) in the shared service platform of the CAS' large research infrastructure. He is a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, the Chinese Chemical Society, and the Chinese Crystallographic Society. He has been honored as youth talent of the Chinese Crystallographic Society, a Youth Innovation Promotion Association Member of the CAS, and urgently needed talent of industry development in Dalian.
Jiangwei received his BS from Beijing University of Chemical Technology, China, in 2011 and his PhD from the Department of Chemistry at Tsinghua University, China, in 2016. Currently his research focuses on the controllable functionalization of cluster-based organic-inorganic hybrid materials synthesis and their corresponding catalytic applications in cutting edge energy-related fields.
As the first or corresponding author, he has published 22 papers in peer-reviewed journals including Coordination Chemistry Reviews, Nano Research, Nanoscale, and Chemical Communications, and has also contributed two chapters to two scientific books: Trends in Polyoxometalates Research and Chemistry of Nanomaterials - A Practical Guide. Two patents have been applied based on his research. He has also gained academic awards, including best poster awards at annual academic meetings of the Chinese Chemical Society, and he is a reviewer for international journals including Nanoscale and Inorganic Chemistry Communications.
