Group Leader


Dr. Xindong Mu. Associate Professor. Dr. Mu has received his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry at Beijing University in 2005, and worked in the University of Tokyo as a research associate from 2005 to 2008. In the recent five years, Dr. Mu has 7 publications in Catal. Lett., J. Am. Chem. Soc., J. Catal., Chem. Commun., and related peer-reviewed journals. The current projects of his group are supported by NSFC, National 863 program, and Qingdao Municipality. The research interests are mainly in the fields of biomass pretreatment and green catalysis and conversion. More...
