Professor Shu-Hong Yu appointed as Associate Editor

A new Associate Editor for CrystEngComm….Shu-Hong Yu

From 1st May 2011, researchers working in the area of nanocrystals will have a new option for submitting their articles to CrystEngComm.

Professor Shu-Hong Yu, based at the University of Science & Technology of China in Hefei and the National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at Microscale, China, has recently been appointed as a CrystEngComm Associate Editor, with his Editorial Office opening 1st May.

Associate Editor, Professor Shu-Hong Yu

Shu-Hong  studied chemistry at the Hefei University of Technology and received his first degree in 1988. He studied at the Shanghai Research Institute of Chemical Industry (SRICI), and then moved to the University of Science and Technology of China, where he was awarded his PhD. From 1999 to 2001, he worked in Materials and Structures Laboratory, Tokyo Institute of Technology, and was later awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Fellowship (2001-2002) in the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Germany, working with Prof. Dr. Markus Antonietti and PD Habil Dr. Helmut Cölfen. He joined the Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at Microscale (HFNL) in 2003.

Currently, he leads the Division of Nanomaterials & Chemistry, HFNL, and also is the acting Deputy Dean of the School of Chemistry & Materials, University of Science and Technology of China.

Shu-Hong’s research interests include bio-inspired synthesis and self-assembly of advanced inorganic materials; templated-directed organization of nanoparticles; novel inorganic synthesis; the synthesis of biominerals and their applications; and the optical, electronic, magnetic, and catalytic properties of low dimensional nanostructured materials.  Find out more about Shu-Hong’s research at his website and check out some of his recent papers below:
