Prize Winner: Professor Xiao Cheng Zen

Congratulations to our Associate Editor, Professor Xiao Cheng Zen, who has been awarded the Royal Society of Chemistry Surfaces and Interfaces Award for 2017 for his development of a unified theory to understand the relationship between structure and properties of nanoscale materials at surfaces and interfaces.


Xiao Cheng Zeng is currently at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where his main research interests cover the physical chemistry of confined water, ice, and ice hydrate in nanoscale; ions and radicals at air/water interfaces; heterogeneous catalysis on supported gold clusters; and computer-aided design of low-dimensional materials including liganded gold clusters and perovskite solar-cell materials.

He is the recipient of many awards, and is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the American Physical Society (APS), and the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC). He has published 475+ articles in refereed journals (Google Scholar h-index: 70; citations 17000+). Four articles were featured in Chemistry World (RSC) and ten papers were featured in Chemical & Engineering News (ACS).



Professor Xiao Cheng Zen has been an Associate Editor for Nanoscale since 2012, and we congratulate him for his success!
