We are delighted to welcome Professor Zi-Chen Li (Peking University) to his role as a new Associate Editor for Polymer Chemistry!
Zi-Chen Li received his B.A. degree from Shandong University in 1987 and his M.Sci. degree from the Institute of Chemistry, CAS, in 1990. In 1995, he completed his PhD in Polymer Chemistry under the direction of Professor Fu-Mian Li at Peking University (PKU). During his doctoral studies, he stayed at Waseda University, Japan, for one year as an exchanging student. After a two-year (1995-1996) postdoctoral research stint at PKU and Waseda University, he became a faculty member at PKU in 1997, and was promoted to professor in 2002.
His primary research interests currently include new polymerization methods, stimuli-responsive polymers and their biomedical applications, controlled degradation of polymers and recycling of monomers.
To learn about his research read some of his Polymer Chemistry articles below!
