Professor Dr. Xinbin Ma is the Dean of School of Chemical Engineering and Technology of Tianjin University and the Director of Key Laboratory of Green Chemical Technology of Ministry of Education in China. He is also the deputy head of the expert team for the National Key R&D Program of China on clean coal technologies. Prof. Ma obtained his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from Tianjin University in 1996. His research interest encompasses the efficient utilization of syngas, emphasizing converting syngas to oxygenated compounds, like ethylene glycol, ethanol, and organic carbonates. He has been involved in studies from catalysts rational design to industrial scale-up to understand the catalytic mechanism, catalyst structure-performance relationship, reaction kinetics, and mass transfer process. He has co-authored over 300 SCI papers in prestigious journals with h-index of 44. With 34 Chinese patents and 7 international patents granted, Prof. Ma owns a series of technologies of independent intellectual property rights to synthesize glycol/ethanol from syngas, which has been successfully applied in the industry. He has also been awarded National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars in 2013. He is the associate editor of Ind. Eng. Chem. Res. and he is reported by Elsevier as one of the most cited Chinese researchers in the field of Chemical Engineering during 2014-2020.
