RESEARCH AREAS

Dr. Guangjin Hou received his Ph.D. degree in 2007 at Wuhan Institute of Physics and Mathematics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and his advisors were Professors Feng Deng and Chaohui Ye. Dr. Hou worked with Prof. Hans W. Spiess at the Max-Planck Institute for Polymer Research of the Max-Planck Society, Germany, as a postdoctoral researcher from 2007 to 2009. Then he joined Prof. Tatyana Polenova's group in 2009 at the University of Delaware as a postdoctoral researcher and was promoted to a Research Associate II in 2011. In 2012, Dr. Hou began his independent research career at the University of Delaware as an NMR senior scientist. Since September 2017, he joined the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, CAS, as a Full Professor, and was appointed as the group leader of Solid-State Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Catalytic Chemistry in the State Key Laboratory of Catalysis. He is an awardee of the 2017 National "Thousand Talents" Youth Program.

Dr. Hou's research group currently focuses on the methodology development of solid-state NMR spectroscopy and its applications in the structural and dynamics studies of solid materials involved in catalysis, energy storage, macromolecular polymer, and biology. Dr. Hou has published over 90 articles so far in Science, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci., Nat. Commun., J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem., Adv. Energy Mater., Acc. Chem. Res., Environ. Sci. Technol. etcCurrently Dr. Hou also serves as an editorial board member of Journal of Magnetic Resonance, Solid State Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Chemometrics and Intelligent Laboratory Systems, Magnetic Resonance Letters, Chinese Journal of Magnetic Resonance, and Acta Physico-Chimica Sinica.


Current Research Interests:

1. Structural characterization of nano-interfacial multi-functional complex catalytic materials;

2. Investigations of catalytic mechanism and dynamics in C1 catalytic conversion reactions;

3. Development of novel solid-state NMR methodology and in-situ characterization techniques;

4. Mechanism studies of lithium-ion-battery (LIB) and sodium-ion-battery (SIB) materials;

5. Structural and dynamics studies of polymer and biological materials by solid-state NMR.
