Short Biography
Hongyu Zhang received the Ph.D in 2006 at Jilin University, majoring in Organic chemistry. Between October of 2006 and October of 2008, he joined in Prof. Shigehiro Yamaguchi’s group at Nagoya University as a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellow. In November of 2008, he joined the faculty of Jilin University as an associate professor of chemistry and promoted to full professor in 2014. His main research interests focus on the design and synthesis of organic materials and their applications in optoelectronics. He was awarded the Excellent Young Scientist of the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) in 2016. Currently, he has published more than 100 refereed papers in Chem. Soc. Rev., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Adv. Mater., and Chem. Sci. etc with over 4000 citations (H index = 35).
Research Interest
His main research interests focuses on the design and synthesis of organic materials and their applications in optoelectronics including organic light-emitting diodes, organic field-effect transistors and organic lasers.
