Prof. LI Qi Appointed Editor of Journal of Materials Research and Technology


Prof. LI Qi from Environment Functional Materials Division at Institute of Metal Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IMR, CAS) was recently appointed as Editor of Journal of Materials Research and Technology (JMRT).

Prof. LI graduated from Tsinghua University in 2000, where he got his double bachelor of engineering degree in materials science and engineering (major) and computer technology and application (minor). From 2000 to 2007, he studied in the department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he got his MS and Ph.D. degrees. From 2007 to 2009, he worked as a posdoctoral research associate in University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In 2009, he joined IMR as a professor, and is now leading the Environment Functional Materials Division as the deputy director.

Prof. LI’s research is focused on the development of functional materials for environment remediation, including photocatalytic materials and photocatalysis, adsorbents for the removal of heavy metal ions from water, catalytic materials for water purification, sensors for environmental monitoring, and direct-write assembly of three dimensional structures.

In his research, he had developed highly-efficient, visible-light-activated photocatalysts with post-illumination photocatalytic “memory” effect, proposed a general material criterion for the selection of highly efficient arsenic adsorbents based on metal oxides/hydroxides and developed a series of highly efficient arsenic adsorbents based on this criterion, and developed catalytic materials to remove various carcinogenic anions from water.

JMRT is a publication of the Brazilian Metallurgical, Materials and Mining Association and publishes four issues per year. It provides an international medium for the publication of theoretical and experimental studies related to Metallurgy, Materials and Minerals research and technology. Appropriate submissions to JMRT should include scientific and/or engineering factors which affect processes and products in the Metallurgy, Materials and Mining areas. The impact factor of JMRT in 2017 is 3.398.
