Ning Li was born in Akesu, Xingjiang province in 1976. He got his Bachelor and Master degree in Jilin University in 1997 and 2000. In 2004, he was awarded Ph. D degree by Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. The topic of his Ph. D thesis is “Selective reduction of NO with methane over solid acid supported catalysts”. From 2005 to 2008, he worked as post-doc in Institute of Research on Catalysis Lyon (IRCE LYON) under the financial support of CNRS post-doctoral fellowship and Marie Curie (FP-6) international incoming fellowship from European Commission. During this period, his research work is about the total oxidation of organic contaminations by wet air oxidation and electrochemical promoted catalysis. Then he joined the research group of Prof. George W. Huber in Department of Chemical Engineering of University of Massachusetts-Amherst and worked there for two years on the hydrodeoxygenation of biomass derived oxygenates to liquid fuels (including high octane number gasoline and jet fuel). In September 2009, he returned to China and joined Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics as a candidate of 100-talent program. Currently, his research interest mainly concentrated on following areas: new material for heterogeneous catalysis; biomass conversion; environmental catalysis.
Main research areas:
☆ Synthesis of high quality diesel or jet fuel by C-C coupling reaction of lignocellulose derived platform compounds and hydrodeoxygenation.
☆ Low temperature hydrogenolysis of lignocellulose derived platform compounds to value increase chemicals (such as alcohols and diols).
☆ Selective reduction of nitrogen oxides and the total oxidation of organic contamination.
