DemingKong obtained a BS degree in Chemistry from Nankai University, Tianjin, China, in 1998, and a PhD degree in Analytical chemistryfrom Nankai University in 2003. In this year, he joined the College of Chemistry in Nankai University as anassistant professor, and was promoted to associate professor in December 2004, and to professor in December 2009. As a visiting scholar, he worked in Kent State University (USA) for half a year (January 2014~July 2014). He won the Second Prize of the Natural Science of Tianjin (second place) in 2008, Chinese Chemical Society Young Chemist Award in 2010, and New Century Excellent Talents in University in 2010.In 2014, he won the support of theExcellent Young Scientist Fundation of NSFC.
