Topic Abstract:

The importance of Sino-German collaboration in the field of chemistry will be the main focus of this China Discussion Forum. Prof. Dr. Yi Pan and Prof. Dr. Gerd-Volker Röschenthaler will shortly present their joint research projects such as “Fluorinated Organyls as Lithium-Ion Battery Components” to enable and hoping for an ensuing discussion with all participants. So, this event will exemplary show and especially encourage the discussion about the relevance of Sino-German cooperation in chemistry.

Prof. Dr. Yi Pan is professor at Nanjing University where he was Vice President (Deputy Vice-Chancellor) from 2006 to 2017 and the dean of the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at Nanjing University from 2001 to 2006. Furthermore, he is a commissioner of several Chinese chemistry societies and member of various advisory boards.

Prof. Dr. Gerd-Volker Röschenthaler is professor of chemistry at Jacobs University Bremen and concurrent professor at Nanjiing University, where he is holding lectures and collaborates with Prof. Dr. Yi Pan’s working group. His research interests overlap with Prof. Pan’s regarding the syntheses and development of new Li-battery electrolyte salts, additives, redox-shuttles, and electrolyte solvents.
