Xinhe Bao, Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, China


BAO Xinhe received his PhD in Physical Chemistry from Fudan University in 1987 and then worked as a Fellow of Alexander von Humboldt in Frize-Haber institute of Max-Planck Society in Berlin/Germany. He became a full Professor of the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP, CAS) in China in 1995 and group leader of Nano & Interface Catalysis at the State Key Laboratory of Catalysis later. He held the position of the institute director from 2000 to 2007, the President of Shenyang Branch of the Chinese Academy of Sciences from 2009 to 2014, the Executive Vice President of Fudan University from 2015 to 2017. He was appointed the President of the University of Science and Technology of China in 2017.

Bao is the member of Chinese Academy of Sciences, the member of the Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS) and the Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK). He is currently the vice President of Chemistry Society of China and the President of Chinese Society of Catalysis. Bao is Editor-in-chief of Journal of Energy Chemistry (JEC, Elsevier), and his name is listed in the editorial board or international advisory borad of several international scientific journals, including Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Energy & Env. Sci., Chem. Sci., Surf. Sci. Report, ChemCatChem, ChemPhysChem, Surf. Sci. and etc.

His research focuses mainly on the fundamental understanding of catalysis, and its application to the development of new catalyst and catalytic process related to energy conversion, in particular clean coal and natural gas utilization. His achievements in catalysis of nanoporous materials, nano-structured carbon materials and nano-sized oxide particles, as well as in fundamental understanding of nano-confined catalysis have been well recognized worldwide. BAO has published more than 700 scientific papers and 1 book (Elsevier) with a citation over 23000 times, and filed 160 patents. He was awarded the prizes of National Science Award (second Class, 2005), Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation for scientific and Technological Progress Award in Chemistry(2012), Award in Basic Science from Zhou Guang Zhao Foudation(2015), Outstanding Science and Technology Acheivement Prize of the Chinese Academy of Sciences(2015), Outstanding Achievement Award of International Natural Gas Conversion(2016), Alwin Mittasch Prize(2017), Tan Kah Kee Science Awards(2018).
