C.J. Zhong's work, which involves fundamental research as well as the development of practical applications, has high-stakes implications in fields as diverse as chemical and biological sensing, information storage and catalysis.
He explores the design, fabrication, characterization and application of novel nanomaterials, miniaturization strategies and analytical tools for solving real-world problems in areas such as chemical or biological sensors, catalysis, micro/nano-electronics, environmental cleanup and biomedical devices.
Zhong’s recent projects include molecularly engineered nanomaterials with novel sensory, catalytic, optical, magnetic and electronic functions; microsensor arrays and microfluidic devices; and analytical surface techniques for probing interfacial processes and reaction mechanisms. His team’s understanding of the interfacial phenomena and nanoscale chemistry at the molecular level has led to the exploration of their industrial applications in mirosensor technology, fuel cell technology and biomedical probes.
Zhong, who earned his PhD at Xiamen University, joined Binghamton University’s Chemistry Department faculty in 1998. He received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2004 and has since shared in a $1 million grant from the NSF’s Nanoscale Interdisciplinary Research Team.
