 Assis. Prof.Jin Shang, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong


Research Area:

Gas adsorption, separation, storage, and sensoring; carbon capture; natural gas purification; VOCs removal; NOx abatement 


Research Experience:

Dr. Jin Shang is an assistant professor in the School of Energy and Environment at City University of Hong Kong. He received his PhD in Chemical Engineering at the University of Melbourne in 2013. He then worked as research fellow on an Australian Research Council Discovery Project focusing on developing advanced adsorbents for carbon capture in Cooperative Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Technologies (CO2CRC) at the University of Melbourne. Afterwards, he moved to Georgia Institute of Technology and worked as a postdoctoral fellow funded by ExxonMobil focusing on restricted gas diffusion in zeolites by advanced molecular simulation, prior to joining the City University of Hong Kong in September 2016. Since 2015, as Co-founder of Australian Research Council Training Centre for Liquefied Natural Gas Futures, he has been actively participated in LNG focused research along with major industry partners in oil and gas field. Dr. Shang specializes in molecular adsorption, separation, and storage using porous materials such as zeolites and metal-organic frameworks. His research is focused on understanding the fundamental physical chemistry of molecular adsorption process via combined experimental and computational methods, in order to rationally develop high-performance adsorbents and catalysts. The target applications include carbon capture and utilization, methane purification from nature gas/biogas/landfill gas, nitrogen oxides removal and abatement, volatile organic compounds removal, energy gas storage, etc.
