Prof. Dr. Wei, born in 1967, received his BA from CentralChinaNormalUniversity in 1988, his MS from WuhanUniversity in 1991, and his Ph.D in chemistry from PekingUniversity in 1995. He became a faculty member of the Chemistry Department of Peking University in 1995, and was promoted to associate professor in 1999. During the year of 2000-2001, he spent his post-doctoral time as a research associate at University of Missouri - Kansas City (USA), and joined TsinghuaUniversity in 2005. His research interests include the chemistry of polyoxometalates, coordination chemistry and single-crystal X-ray crystallography, and are currently focused on the synthesis and chemical modification of polyoxometalates, polyoxometalate-promoted/catalyzed C-H bond activation and direct functionalization, and the reaction chemistry and controllable assembly of organically-derivatized polyoxometalates. He is a member of the Third Council of Chinese Society of Crystallography and a member of the Small Molecules Committee of Chinese Society of Crystallography.
