Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers is delighted to welcome Professor Jun Chen of Nankai University as Associate Editor for the journal.
Jun Chen obtained his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from Nankai University in 1989 and 1992, respectively, and his Ph.D. from Wollongong University (Australia) in 1999. He held the NEDO fellowship at National Institute of AIST Kansai Center (Japan) from 1999 to 2002. He has been working as a full professor in Nankai University since 2002. He has been Cheung Kong Professor in College of Chemistry at Nankai University since 2005 and is now serving as Dean of this college from 2017. He has been elected as Chairman of Chinese Society of Electrochemistry and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK) in 2015.
Jun Chen’s research activities focus on solid-state materials, nanostructured materials, and energy materials chemistry. He received the State Natural Science Award (the 2nd Grade) in 2011 because of his contribution in H/Li/Mg storage and batteries.
