He has been committed to research on ionic liquids (ILs) and green processes, closely integrating basic research of ILs with industrial applications, and has been striving to build a transformative technological system for green chemical processes. In 2010, he was awarded the second prize of the National Natural Science Award of China. He was subsequently elected as the Member of CAS in 2015 and won the CAS S&T for Development Award in 2017. In 2020, he was awarded the Ho Leung Ho Lee Science and Technology Progress Award. He also won the CCS-BASF Youth Knowledge Innovation Award, the Beijing Technology Invention Award, and the Hou Debang Chemical Technology Achievement Award. He has been named in the WoS Highly Cited Researchers Report and has published more than 600 articles with over 34,000 citations and an H-index of 92. He has invented more than 10 green technologiesand owns 200 patents. In addition, he founded two international academic journals, Green Energy & Environment (GEE, IF=8.207, JCR Q1)in 2016 and Green Chemical Engineering (GreenChE) in 2020, and served as the founding editor-in-chief. He initiated the Asia-Pacific Conference on Ionic Liquids and Green Process (APCIL) and the National Conference on Ionic Liquids (ILC), which have become a series of reputational academic events in the field of ILs in China and worldwide
