Advanced Membranes by the selective swelling of block copolymers
Prof. Yong Wang received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Polymer Science and Engineering from Tianjin Polytechnic University in 1999 and 2002, respectively, and Ph. D. in Chemistry from Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, in 2005. He worked as Research Scientist at Procter&Gamble (2005–2006) and Humboldt Fellow at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics (2006–2009). He is currently Distinguished Jiusi Professor at Nanjing Tech University. He is leading a group with 25 members working on advanced membranes and separation processes with block copolymers and atomic layer deposition as the main enablers and homoporous membranes (HOMEs) is the group’s current focus. Prof. Yong Wang is the (co)author of 140+ peer-reviewed papers, and also the (co)inventor of 12 licensed patents. He has been awarded Chinese Chemical Society Prize for Young Scientists (2012) and Jiangsu Young Scientist Prize (2016).
