Prof. Jiaqiang Xu
Shanghai University, China
Jiaqiang Xu is currently a Professor
and Vice Dean of Department of Chemistry at
Shanghai University. He is internationally
recognized as an expert in gas sensor and
nanostructuredmaterials. His accomplishments
include over 200 peer-reviewed
journalpublications with 5700 cited times
and 42 H-Index; 6 provincial science
andtechnology achievement awards and tens of
Currently, he is a director of SpecialCommittee on Gas and Humidity Sensor Technologies within China Electronics Society, An academic leader of nanostructured materials and devices fieldbelong to Nanomaterials Chemistry Key Discipline of Shanghai Municipal Education Commission. He also is a member of Council of Sensors and ActuatorsTechnical Committee, China Instrument and Control Society, and China sensors alliance.
Prof.Jiaqiang Xu's group focuses on the design and synthesis of novel nanomaterialsfor a broad range of applications, including chemical sensing, biomedicalanalysis, catalysis, fuel cell and lithium battery technology. Their currentefforts on nanomaterials include the controllable synthesis of semiconductingnanomaterials, bimetallic nanocrystals, mesoporous silica, and organic/inorganichybrid materials. For the semiconductor nanomaterials research work, they aredeveloping different semiconductor nanomaterials with different morphology andstructure, and exploring the use of these nanomaterials as gas sensingmaterials for environmental and industrial monitoring, personal safety orpublic security. They have synthesized and assembled hierarchical semiconductornanomaterials from integrating low dimensional building blocks for gas sensingwith improved stability and sensitivity. They introduced monodispersed metalnanocrystal on the surface of semiconductor nanowires to construct diversefunctional nano-architectures for fabricating chemical sensors with tunableperformances.
They also synthesized different silica-based mesoporous organic-inorganic hybrid materials to construct QCM gassensors, and used for the detection of hazardous substances, including nerveagent simulant, organic vapor, and heavy metal ion. Other research interests inhis group are taken to the synthesis of functionalized bimetallic nanomaterialsand graphene to exploit their applications in chemical sensing, catalysis andenergy storage and conversion.
