We are very pleased to announce a new associate editor of Polymer Chemistry. Please join us in welcoming Wenping Hu!
Wenping Hu is a Professor at the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He received his PhD from the Institute in 1999 before joining Osaka and Stuttgart Universities as a research fellow. After time spent working at Nippon Telephone and Telegraph (NTT), Wenping returned to the Institute and was promoted to full professor in 2003. He has received awards for both his research and teaching activities, including the Chinese Chemical Society and Royal Chemical Society Young Chemist Award in 2010 and the CCS-Evonik (Degussa) Chemical Innovation Award in 2012. Wenping’s research focuses on organic/molecular electronics, including the design and synthesis of organic and polymeric conjugated materials, the examination of their optoelectronic properties and their applications in devices.
His recent papers include:
