Hengquan Yang


Dr. Hengquan Yang was born in 1976 in Hubei province, and obtained bachelor degree from Three Gorges University and master degree from Wu Han University, respectively. In June 2004, he received Ph.D. from Wu Han University after three-year supervision of academician, Gaoyong Zhang. The academic interest mainly involved synthesis of mesoporous material, its organic functionalization and applications in fine chemical synthesis, physical chemistry of surfactant as well as its applications in the preparation of novel nano-structured material. From August 2004 on, he began working as a post Ph.D. fellow in Dalian Institute Chemical Physics of CAS, collaborating with academician, Can Li. The present research focuses on design and synthesis of organic-inorganic hybrid materials, especially chiral hybrid materials and applications in asymmetric heterogeneous catalysis.
