为加强天津理工大学新能源材料与低碳技术研究院国际交流与合作，2019年8月16日，应鲁统部教授邀请，美国南佛罗里达大学马胜前教授访问我院，并为师生们作了题为“Metal-Organic Frameworks as a New Platform for Small Molecule Activation”的学术报告。来自新能源材料与低碳技术研究院、材料科学与工程学院及相关学院的师生参加了此次报告会。
Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) represent a new class of materials, and one of their striking features lies in the tunable, designable, and functionalizable nanospace. The nanospace within MOFs allows designed incorporation of different functionalities for targeted applications, such as gas storage/separation, sensing, drug delivery; and it has also provided plenty of opportunities for heterogeneous catalysis application. We will discuss the systematic development of MOFs as a new platform for small molecule activation including CO2chemical transformations and H2activation.
Shengqian Ma obtained his B.S. degree from Jilin University, China in 2003, and graduated from Miami University (Ohio) with a Ph.D. degree in 2008. After finishing two-year Director’s Postdoctoral Fellowship at Argonne National Laboratory, he joined the Department of Chemistry at University of South Florida (USF) as an Assistant Professor in August 2010. He was promoted to an Associate Professor with early tenure in 2015 and to a Full Professor in 2018.
He received the USF Faculty Outstanding Research Achievement Award in 2015 and the USF Outstanding Faculty Award in 2018. He is the recipient of 2014 NSF CAREER Award and has been selected as the Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018; he was also awarded the IUPAC-2015 Young Chemist Travel Award and the 2009 IUPAC Prize for Young Chemists from International Union of Pure & Applied Chemistry (IUPAC); he received the Young Investigator Award from American Chemical Society (ACS) Division of Inorganic Chemistry and the Director’s Postdoctoral Fellowship from Argonne National Laboratory in 2008 as well.
His current research interest focuses on the development of functional porous materials including metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), covalent organic frameworks (COFs), porous organic polymers (POPs), and microporous carbon materials for energy, biological, environmental-related applications. He has published more than 190 papers (over 150 since independent career) with the total citations over 18600 and the H-index of 67.
