Prof. Shunai Che received her PhD from Yokohama National University, Japan, working on the synthesis of mesoporous materials under Prof. Tatsumi Takashi. She worked as a postdoctor for SumioIijima’s carbon-project and a JSPS fellow. In 2004, Shunai Che has moved back to China and been appointed as a professor of Department of Chemistry, School of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, Shanghai Jiao Tong University. She (1) discovered the anionic surfactant templating route to synthesize mesoporous silica; (2) found a new fabrication route for chiral mesoporous materials and proposed new concepts of both chiral mesopore- and electron transition-based optical activity; (3) proposed a concept for designing amphiphilic template with π-π stacking in hydrophobic side to produce single crystalline architecture with highly ordered mesoporous zeolite. Che’s research target is the development of new type mesoporous materials and their applications in catalyst, separation and optical devices.
