Mengqi Zeng

Mengqi Zeng, the Associate Professor of Wuhan University.

Mengqi Zeng mainly focuses on the controllable fabrication of two-dimensional (2D) materials and their related applications. She developed the liquid metal chemical vapor deposition strategy and achieved the precise layer number control, high-efficient property tuning and ordered self-assembly of single crystals of 2D materials.

She has published 23 scientific papers in peer refereed journals as the first author or the corresponding author, including 1 Nat. Mater., 1 Nat. Commun., 1 Acc. Chem. Res., 1 Chem. Rev., 2 J. Am. Chem. Soc.,1 Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 1 Adv. Mater., 1 Chem, 1 Matter, 1 ACS Nano, 2 Small, 1 Nano Energy, 1 Adv. Sci., 1 Chem. Mater. and so on.

As the main author, she finished the first professional translations about graphene, Graphene: Fundamentals and Emergent Applications (Science Press).
