Biography:

Name: LIU Yan
Institution: School of Chemical Engineering, Qinghai University, Xining, 810016 CHINA
Call for Papers Journals:
1995, Environmental Science & Technology (ACS publications IF=4.786)(1995, 2001).
2006, Nature Physics (Nature publishing group IF=18.423)(2008).
Research Area:
Sonoluminescence was developed as new analytical methods in analytical chemistry and environmental monitoring, this work received Nobel Prize nomination in 1996 ; Ultrasonic cavitation was developed as a new Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) in water treatment, which opens a new field of water treatment in the world. Since 1990, including Liu’s papers, the citation time of this area nearly had been 30000 times; Some pioneer research on the theories of sonochemical reactor were studied (e.g. the abbreviation of sono chemical reactor: sonoreactor was first introduced by me in 1994) ; The synthesis of ammonia by Sonochemistry was developed. A model was set up for the floc generation in water coagulation process, a three centuries problem on how to quantitatively describe the floc generation in water coagulation process was solved. Present research: Electron transfer in bio-molecules and cell.)
