Prof. Yukui Zhang is the member of Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Research professor of Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
He obtained his B.S. from Nankai University in 1965, and after that he has been working in DICP, CAS. He worked as the duty director and the director of National Chromatographic R. & A. Center in 1990s, and the duty director-general of China Association for Instrumental Analysis in 2010s. Now he is the director of Chromatography Branch of Chinese Chemistry Society, and the editorial board member of Anal. Chem..
Prof. Zhang’s research is focused on the fundamental, new techniques and methods for separation science. He developed systematic thermodynamic and kinetic research methods for chromatography, and made great contribution to the establishment of expert systems for liquid chromatography. In the field of capillary electrophoresis, he found the rules by studying the effect of operation parameters and molecular structure of solutes on the migration, and was one of the pioneer researchers in capillary electrochromatography in China. In recent years, he has been working on the development of new techniques and platforms for both qualitative and quantitative proteome study, including high efficient sample preparation, high resolution separation, high sensitive identification and high accurate quantification. Prof. Zhang published over 500 papers, wrote 7 books and won the second prize of National Natural Science Award.
