Xiaobo Pan


Xiaobo Pan received a B.S. degree from Jiangsu Normal University in 2005. He then went to Lanzhou University to pursue a Ph.D. degree in Prof. Ning Tang’s and Jincai Wu’s group, developing a series of new sodium/potassium catalysts and application in the ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of lactide. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in June, 2010. Subsequently, He worked at Qingdao Institute of Bioenergy and Bioprocess Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences and focused on the the synthesis and properties of MOFs. In 2012, he was a postdoc at Nanjing University and worked on the syntheses and stabilization of phosphine radical species in Prof. Xinping Wang's group. In 2014, he became an professor of chemistry at Lanzhou University in October. His current research interests include the syntheses and properties of organoborane polymers and containing-boron radical species .
