Talk: Sieving carbons promise low-potential anodes for high-energy sodium ion batteries

Quan-Hong Yang is a Chang Jiang Scholar Chair Professor of School of Chemical Engineering and Technology, Tianjin University and the winner of National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars. He received his BEng from Tianjin University in 1994 and his PhD on New Carbon Materials from Institute of Coal Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1999/

He continued his carbon studies as research fellows in Institute of Metal Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences, CNRS France, Tohoku University and Southampton University. He joined Tianjin University as a full professor in 2006 and was promoted to a chair professor in 2016. His research is totally related to nanocarbons and other low dimensional materials, and their applications in advanced electrochemical energy storage. Specially, his recent interests mainly focus on materials design for compact energy storage devices, catalysis in lithium-sulfur batteries, and carbon design for advanced batteries. He has published over 300 peer-reviewed papers with citations over 33,000 times and H-index of 102. He is a Clarivate Highly Cited Researcher (since 2018) and among Most Cited Chinese Researchers by Elsevier (since 2018). He holds over 40 patents about nanocarbons and batteries. He serves as Associate Editor for Energy Storage Materials and the members of the editorial boards for ten journals including Advanced Energy Materials, Carbon and Science China Materials.
