Professor Hongjun Fan received his BS degree in Chemistry from Zhejiang University in 1994, MS degree in Physical Chemistry from Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter in 1997, and PhD in Chemistry from the University of Siegen (Germany) in 2004. He did postdoctoral research at Indiana University Bloomington from 2005 to 2009. Professor Fan joined the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics full time in 2009 as a member of the Chinese Academy of Science “100 Talent Program”. He has more than 15 years of experiences in theoretical and computational chemistry. From 2009 he worked in State Key Laboratory of Molecular Reaction Dynamics, in the field of photochemistry, heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis.

Reaction mechanism in Photochemistry

Reaction mechanism in homogeneous catalysis

Reaction mechanism in heterogeneous catalysis

The main research areas:

Photo-dissociation of methanol and water on TiO2 surface.

Catalytic hydrogenation reaction in homogeneous system.

Structure, reactivity and reaction mechanism of transition metal compounds and clusters.

Pyrolysis; Stability and reactivity of organic radicals.
