Physical Organic Chemistry
Prof. Jin-Pei Cheng has developed various bond energy methodologies. On the basis of systematic determinations of many series of chemical bonds in conventional molecular solvents or in ionic liquids, Cheng was able to disclose a number of unknown phenomena and rules of theoretical or practical importance in chemistry and life sciences. Recently, he with team built the internet Bond-energy Databank (iBonD) for free access (see: http://ibond.nankai.edu.cn or http://ibond.chem.tsinghua.edu.cn). He is also one of the contributors (the only one from Asia) of CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics (in charge of BDEs) since 2012.
