Dr. Yongxin Pang joined Teesside University in 2006. After his PhD in polymer chemistry at Zhongshan University, China, he has been working in the area of materials science and engineering for many years and built up broad expertise on polymers, ceramics, organic-inorganic hybrids and nanocomposites with regard to structure-property design, synthesis, modification, processing, and applications.
He has conducted a number of projects funded by research councils, organisations and industries, published tens of peer-reviewed journal papers, and filed patents in the UK, USA and worldwide. His research interests are mainly in the area of advanced and functional materials with target applications, such as thermally stable insulation, supercapacitors, and surface coatings via chemical, electrochemical and physical processing approaches. Dr. Pang recently worked on the development of high temperature insulating materials and methodologies in collaboration with Rolls-Royce, Manchester and Sheffield Universities, as well as on nanostructured carbons for energy storage
Dr. Yongxin Pang's research interests include:
· advanced and functional materials through chemical processing
· surface modification via functional coatings by means of chemical, electrochemical and physical approaches.
· organic-inorganic hybrids and nanocomposites
· synthesis, characterisation, processing and application of polymeric materials and composites
· materials and technologies for high temperature capable electric coils and assembles
