Chun-Hua Yan

Academician, Professor


Chun-Hua Yan received his Ph.D. in 1988 from Peking University. He was promoted to a full professor in the Department of Chemistry at Peking University in 1992. He is currently serving as the Editor-in-Chief for J. Rare Earths (Elsevier). He was elected as a Member of Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2011, and Fellow of the Academy of Sciences for the Developing World (TWAS) in 2012. His main research fields are rare earth functional materials, rare earth separation processes and industrial applications.
