Hao-Li Zhang

Ph.D., Professor


Hao-Li Zhang received his B.S. in organic chemistry in 1994, and Ph.D. degree in 1999 from Lanzhou University. He then worked in the University of Leeds and Oxford University as a postdoc. In 2004, he was appointed as a full professor by the State Key Laboratory of Applied Organic Chemistry (SKLAOC) of Lanzhou University. He is currently the deputy director of SKLAOC and deputy dean of the College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. In 2014, he became a Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC). He is an editorial board member of Acta Physico-Chimica Sinica and Chinese Chemical Letters, and an advisory board member of Chem. Soc. Rev.

Prof. Hao-Li Zhang is interested in developing new organic functional materials for electronic and optoelectronic applications. He has published more than 240 research papers on peer-reviewed international journals with citation over 5000, his h index is 37.

Current research projects include:

1.    Design and synthesis of organic semiconductors

2.    Novel light emitting materials

3.    Nonlinear optical materials
