On January 17, Elsevier officially released the 2018 Chinese Most Cited Researchers list. Professor Li Jinlin, president of SCUN, was once again included in the List in the field of chemical engineering.
Professor Li Jinlin's researches center on heterogeneous catalysis and catalytic materials. It is mainly aimed at the efficient conversion and utilization of carbon-containing resources such as coal, natural gas and biomass in China, especially in ethnic minority areas. Based on the interdisciplinary study of catalytic chemistry and nano materials, he conducts basic research and application development related to catalytic conversion of carbon-based resources and nano-catalytic materials, which is well-known and influential in relevant academic fields at home and abroad. In recent years, Professor Li Jinlin has undertaken more than ten national, provincial and ministerial-level key projects including the national science and technology support program, the “973” preliminary research program, key projects funded by national natural science fund-petrochemical joint fund, and major science and technology innovation program in Hubei province. Since 2002, he has published more than 120 SCI papers with a total of more than 4,000 citations. He has been granted 25 national invention patents and 8 provincial and ministerial science and technology awards.
It is known that the Elsevier list of Chinese Most Cited Researchers is based on objective quoted data from Scopus, the world's largest peer-reviewed academic paper index abstract database which systematically analyzes the influence of Chinese researchers in the world and presents the most influential Chinese scholars in the world to the academia and the public. The list covers science, technology, medicine, social science, arts and humanities and other disciplines. In 2018, a total of 1899 domestic researchers were selected in the list, including 95 researchers in the field of chemical engineering.
