We are sad to announce that Professor Gaoquan Shi passed away on the 1st March 2018. Gaoquan will be sorely missed by PCCP and the entire community. A PCCP Associate Editor for over five years, his contributions to the journal, field and community were widespread.
As a Professor of Chemistry at Tsinghua University, his research interests were focused on functional polymers, especially the syntheses and applications of conducting polymers and carbon nanomaterials.
A selection of Gaoquan’s recently published articles are highlighted below in his memory.
