Speaker

Shuangyin Wang received his PhD degree at the Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) in 2010.  He was a postdoctoral fellow working with Prof. Liming Dai (2010-2011) at the Case Western Reserve University and Prof. A. Manthiram (2011-2012) at the University of Texas at Austin. He was a Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Manchester with Prof. K. S. Novoselov (2012-2013). He is currently a Professor of State Key Laboratory of Chem/Bio-sensing and Chemometrics and College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Hunan University. He has published over 150 papers on high impact journals such as Nature Chemistry. Till now, Dr Wang's total citation number is over 22000 times with H-Index of 81, including 54 papers have been selected as the “Highly Cited Paper” in Web of Science. He received First prize of the Hunan Province Natural Science Award and the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars (China). His current research concentrates on defect chemistry of electrocatalysts, high-temperature PEMFC, electrosynthesis.

Abstract:

Organic electrocatalytic conversion is a process of reducing the activation energy and accelerating organic conversion reactions, through the electronic interaction between the catalyst and organic molecules (including small gas molecules). Compared with traditional organic reactions, organic electrocatalytic conversion has made important developments in energy, environment, medicine, chemical and other fields in recent years, due to its high efficiency and green advantages. Recently, Prof Wang's group mainly focuses on "organic electrocatalytic synthesis of small gas molecules coupling", "electrocatalytic oxidation of nucleophilic organic small molecules" and "transformation of biomass platform derivatives" and other aspects. Converting inert molecules into organic molecules firstly under normal temperature and pressure conditions is the highlight for this research work, and then in-situ synchrotron radiation, in-situ Raman and other methods have been adopted to explore the reaction mechanism of nucleophilic organic molecules on nickel-based catalysts; in-situ and Frequency resonance technology clarifies the reaction path in the organic synthesis process. These works are of great significance to further explore organic electrocatalytic reactions, clarify the catalytic mechanism, realize the controllable and precise synthesis of organic compounds.
