Tao Zhang

Team Leader


Tao Zhang received his PhD in physical chemistry from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP), Chinese Academy of Sciences, in 1989 under the supervision of Prof. Liwu Lin. After graduation, he worked as a postdoc with Prof. Frank Berry at Birmingham University for one year. He founded his own group at Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics in 1995. He was appointed as an associated professor in 1993 and then promoted to full professor in 1995. Dr. Zhang was an invited professor at Univesity of Poitiers (France) in the period of 2006-2007 and has been a guest professor at University of Namur (Belgium) since 2011. Dr. Zhang wasthe director of DICP in the period of 2007-2017 and has been the director representing the China aside of the China-France Joint laboratory for Sustainable Energy since 2008.And he wasofficially selected as Academician by theChinese Academy of Sciences in 2013.In 2017, he is promoted as a vice president of Chinese academy of sciences.

Over the past decades, Prof. Zhang has successfully designed a great number of nano and subnano metallic catalysts for applications in energy conversion (such as biomass catalytic conversion and propellant decomposition) and environmental control (such as NOx-SCR and CO removal). He authored and coauthored more than 400 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals. He has applied more than 200 patents and 150of them were licensed.

Prof. Zhang is an associate editor-in-chief of Chinese Journal of Catalysis (since 2015) and is serving on the advisory boards of Applied Catalysis B (since 2008), ChemPhysChem (since 2010), ACS Sustainable Chemistry &Engineering(since 2013), Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research(2014).

Prof. Zhang has also received several research awards, including theScience and Technology Progress Award of HLHLFoundation(2016), Distinguished Award of Chinese Academy of Sciences (2010), Zhou Guang Zhao Foundation Award for Applied Science (2009), Excellent Young Scientist Award of Chinese Catalysis Society (2008), andNational Award of Technology Invention (Second Grade, 2008, 2006, 2005).
