NKU Professor Elected as Fellow of the Chinese Chemical Society in 2023


The Chinese Chemical Society announced the list of fellows of the Chinese Chemical Society (FCCS) in 2023. Professor Pang Dai-Wen of the College of Chemistry of Nankai University was elected as a fellow.

Professor Pang Dai-Wen has studied quantum dots (QDs) for 23 years. He has pioneered the live-cell synthesis of QDs and the corresponding QD labeling technology, and broken through the site-specific quantitative biolabeling of single viruses, realizing the acquisition and analysis of multiple weak biochemical information of dynamic life processes such as the single-virus infection. He has made outstanding achievements in QD synthesis, QD-based single-virus tracking and QD backlight display. He has published over 400 papers in journals such as Nature Protocols, JACS, and Nature Communications and his papers has been cited more than 20,000 times. He has obtained 46 authorized invention patents, delivered 260 invited lectures, and participated in the formulation of 3 national standards on quantum dots. His thought of multi-hierarchical equilibration of QDs has made the worldwide difficult problem of high-temperature processing stability of QDs solved. Accordingly, he invented the first QD light diffusion plate backlight technology integrating light sharing and light conversion, which has been applied to manufacture over 2 million QD TVs. He has been elected as a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. He previously sat on the Advisory Editorial Board of Anal. Chem. and the Editorial Board of J. Electroanal. Chem. and now serves as an Associate Editor of New J. Chem. As a Member of the National Steering Committee for Nanotechnology of China, he is involved in the implementation of the National Major Scientific Program of “Nano Research”, having made contributions to the development of nanotechnology, analytical chemistry and related disciplines. 

The Chinese Chemical Society established the fellowship system in 2019, while the fellows of the Chinese Chemical Society are an important part of the membership system and the highest academic title for members. The Chinese Chemical Society selects no more than 50 fellows each year, and the total number of fellows does not exceed 10% of the total number of senior members.
