Xiaoning Zhang 

xzhang@paine.edu | (706) 821-8384 | George Williams Walker Science Building, Room 106

Assistant Professor of Chemistry  |  Department of Mathematics, Sciences and Technology

I am interested in developing model systems, new materials, and new analytical tools to study reactions on surfaces (chemical and biological) and the small organic compounds or trace and ultra-trace element present in environments. My research interests are broad, and thus I utilize a large number of analytical techniques to better understand the areas described below. 1. Exploring the method of attachment chemistry and its application in the fabrication of a “use” and “re-use” antifouling membrane; 2. Ultra-low voltage electrowetting on a solid-like ionic liquid dielectric layer and its application in protein separation on the surface; 3. Developing array fabrication chemistry strategies for multi-type protein modification on surfaces, as well as monitoring biomolecular binding events; 4. Developing simple and efficient procedures for the analysis of small organic compounds or trace and ultra-trace element present in environment using a variety of analytical equipments.
