Prof. Jin’s research covers the synthesis, characterization, and applications of nanoparticles. His group develop chemical methods for synthesizing new types of inorganic nanoclusters and nanocrystals, hybrid nano-architectures, and inorganic/polymer nanocomposites. He is also very interested in the applications of nanoparticles in catalysis, optics, chemo- and bio-sensing, and photovoltaics.
Professor Jin was co-Guest Editor on the recent Nanoscale themed issue on Metallic Clusters which, according to his Editorial “offers a snapshot of the very diverse research work being carried out on metal clusters” from fundamental to applied research.
