Research

September 1991-June 1996
Senior student researcher, Chemistry Department, Beijing Normal University,
Supervisor: Prof. Ruozhuang Liu
Thesis: Theoretical Study on the Dynamics of State (Bond)-Selected Reaction and the Product State Distribution
  • The effect of isotope deuterium on rate constant for reactions H2O(HOD)+Cl and H2(D2)+CN
  • Programming the computer to calculate the product vibrational state distribution. The results for reaction HCN(004,302)+Cl were given as an example.
July 1996-October 1998
Postdoctoral research fellow (full-time job), State Key Laboratory for Structural Chemistry of Unstable & Stable Species, Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences. I was qualified to be an associate researcher in October 1998 by the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
  • Carrying out research on the kinetics of isomerization reactions, including SSF2--FSSF, 2(3H)furanone--2(5H)furanone, etc.
  • Development of the Computer Controlled Data Acquisition and Data Process Devices for the lab.
November 1998-July 2000
Associate Professor (full-time job), Biochemistry Department, Zhongshan University, Guangzhou, P.R. China
  • The applications of Markov models in finding new genes.
August 2000-July 2002
Postdoctoral research fellow (full-time job, BATIIa), Institute for Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, Bonn University, Germany
  • Derivation of new atomic natural orbital valence basis sets (14s13p10d8f6g)/[6s6p5d4f3g] for relativistic energy-consistent small-core lanthanide pseudopotentials of the Stuttgart-Bonn variety.
  • accurate investigation of systems containing lanthanide elements.
August 2002- Present
Postdoctoral research fellow (August 2002-December 2005, full-time job, BATIIa; January 2006-December 2007, part-time job, 1/3 BATIIa; January 2008-Present, part-time job, 1/2 BATIIa), Institute for Theoretical Chemistry, Köln University, Germany
  • Derivation of new atomic natural orbital valence basis sets (14s13p10d8f6g)/[6s6p5d4f3g] for relativistic energy-consistent small-core actinide pseudopotentials of the Stuttgart-Köln variety.
  • Ab initio and DFT studies of complex systems containing lanthanide and actinide elements, e.g. chemical separation of Ln(III) and An(III).
