Huang, Xingjiu,male, Ph. D and selected into the “Hundred Talents Program” of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), is currently a professor and Ph.D. supervisor at Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Professor Huang’s research interest covers the electrochemical analysis toward the persistent toxic substances (PTS) in environment, and integrating with nanotechnology, environmental chemistry and computational chemical technology.
Professor Huang has made a number of innovative research achievements in nanotechnology, environmental chemistry. 1. He proposed a general method for the fabrication of the electrochemical sensing interface based on the facet-dependent properties of nanomaterials, and revealed the mechanism of “the selective absorption behavior of nanomaterials leading to the selective electrochemical response”, which is of benefit in providing theoretical guidance and practical importance for designing the electrochemical sensing interface.
2. Based on the interaction mechanism between PTS and conductive carbon-based or non-conductive nanomaterials, he developed a general method in designing the highly sensitive and selective sensing interface and fabricating PTS sensor devices.
3. He established a novel electroanalytical method based on the dielectric property of micropollutants or “electron-transfer-blockage”, which efficiently solved the challenge in the electroanalysis toward chemical inertness and persistent toxic substances.
In the past four years, he has published more than SCI-indexed 40 papers as the corresponding author, including 13 papers (IF > 5.0) published on Analytical Chemistry, Trends in Analytical Chemistry, Small, Advanced Functional Materials, Chemical Communications, among which 2 papers was selected as Front Cover, and 2 papers as Back Cover. His papers have received a total of citations for more than 144 times and the highest citation for more than 14 times according to the Science Citation Index (SCI) database. He has participated and written one of chapters for Electrochemistry-Volume 11: Nanosystems Electrochemistry presented by Royal Society of Chemistry Press. He won the 15th Anhui Provincial Natural Science Award in 2013, one second prize of Science and Technology Award of Anhui Province (Third Class) in 2013, and Excellent Graduate Advisor Award from Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2013. 2 papers in his group have obtained the second prize for 7th Anhui Provincial Natural Science Outstanding Dissertation Award in 2013. The supervised Ph. D students have gained one prize of the National Scholarship, one prize of the Zhu Liyuehua scholarship from Chinese Academy of Sciences, and one prize of the Guanghua Educational Scholarship in 2013.
