Short CV
Zhi Lin is an investigator of Research Center for Ceramics and Composites at University of Aveiro since 2003. He received the B.Sc. degree in physics from Nanjing University (1982) and the M.Eng. degree in materials from Shanghai Institute of Ceramics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (1985). He obtained the Ph.D. degree in chemistry from the University of Aveiro in 1998. Between 1998 and 2002, he worked as post-doctoral research. Since 1994, he has begun to study new crystalline microporous materials. He was familiar with hydrothermal synthesis and characterization, especially via solid state nuclear magnetic resonance and X-ray crystallography, of microporous silicates with stoichiometric amount of Ti, Zr, Sn and Hf. Recently he worked on applications of these new materials, especially as membranes and ion exchangers. He is reviewer of Journal of the American Chemical Society; Inorganic Chemistry; Journal of Physical Chemistry; Chemistry Letters; International Journal of Hydrogen Energy; AIChE Journal; Solid State Science; Journal of Hazardous Materials; Microporous and Mesoporous Materials; Materials Letters.
