Recently, the academician Prof. Zhong-Qun Tian from College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering of Xiamen University, the director of Collaborative Innovation Center of Chemistry for Energy Materials (iChEM), has been awarded for ACS Award in Spectrochemical Analysis for his distinguished achievements in surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) and spectro-electrochemistry. The award will be presented at the ACS National Meeting in August 2017 in Philadelphia, USA.

ACS Award in Spectrochemical Analysis was established in 1987, and only one awardee each year, aiming to reward the scientists who have a significant international impact and make outstanding contributions to the fields of spectrochemical analysis and optical spectrometry. As the only one recipient of this award from China as well as Asia, Prof. Tian is highly acknowledged by international counterparts in spectroscopy for his exploration in frontier science and development of scientific instruments, which also demonstrates the international status and impact of Xiamen University in spectroscopy research.

The group led by Prof. Tian adhere to scientific research with indomitable spirits and made great pioneering contributions not only to the basic research in SERS, spectro-electrochemistry, and nanochemistry, but also in the development and application of some new portable spectroscopy instruments such as food safety inspection.

Congratulations to Prof. Tian for 2017 ACS Award in Spectrochemical Analysis!
