Shaojun DONG was born in Qingdao in China. She received her
B.S. degree in 1952 from Furen University(1,
2), Beijing. Since then she was
selected in Changchun
Institute of Applied Chemistry (CIAC) of the
Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). She worked at CIAC as
Research Associate(1960), Associate Professor(1979), and Full
Professor and Head of the
Laboratory of Electroanalytical Chemistry, CAS(1986-1998).
She has been Visiting Scholar in Tohoku
University, Japan(1981); and Ohio
State University, USA(1983), Visiting Professor of several
universities: the University
of Kansas, USA(1986); University
of Bourgogne in Dijon, France(1991,1993 and 1994) and Nanjing
She has served as the Director of both Chinese
Chemical Society and Chinese Society of Analytical Instrument.
She is also on the Editorial Board of international journals
and Bioenergetics" ,"Electrochemistry
Journal of Analytical Chemistry", "Analytical Sciences",
"Electrochemistry", "Chemical Sensors" and "Analytical Instrumentation".
Professor Dong's research interests
include chemically modified electrodes(CMEs), spectroelectrochemistry,
bioelectrochemistry, ultramicroelectrode, biosensors and scanning
tunneling microscopy. She contributes significantly in the research
field of CME, especially on conducting polymers, metallomacrocycles
and inorganic compound film electrodes, theory and methodology
for kinetic process of electrocatalysis in an unstable system,
ultramicroelectrode and chemically modified ultramicroelectrode,
biosensors and the direct electrochemistry of proteins and enzymes.
She has published 450 papers (till the
end of 2000) most in international journals and 11 patents in
China. Recently she published two books in Chinese and 6 monographs
in English related to CMEs and spectroelectrochemistry and bioelectrochemistry.
Professor Dong has received Second Class
of National Award of Advanced Science and Technology (1986),
the First Class Award (1989) and the Second Class Award of Natural
Science(1993 and 1995) from CAS and Third Class Award of National
Natural Science of China(1987). She has established one of the
most active and productive laboratories in the field of analytical
chemistry and electrochemistry in China. Over 50 postgraduates
have received their Ph.D. and M.S. degree under her guidance.
Professor Dong's work is known internationally,
she has organized a number of symposia and delivered over 30
keynote and plenary lectures in international conferences. She
has been invited to present 100 seminars and lectures in foreign
universities and institutions in USA, UK, Canada, Germany, France,
Italy, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, former
