Yinghong Sheng is currently an Associate Professor of chemistry at Florida Gulf Coast University, Fort Myers, Florida, USA. Sheng received his B.S. degree in chemistry from Jiangxi Normal University, Nanchang, Jiangxi, China, an M.S. degree in physical chemistry degree from Beijing Normal University, Beijing, China, and a Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry from Nanjing University, Nanjing, Jiangsu, China. He was a Research Associate at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong, and Postdoc. Fellow at Emory University, Atlanta, GA, USA and Jackson State University, Jackson, MS, USA. Sheng’s interest is to integrate state-of-the-art computational chemistry methods into studying the chemical reactions in biological, environmental, and material sciences. Sheng’s research experience includes studies on the structure-property relationships of nonlinear optical (NLO) materials and aromatic systems; the reaction mechanisms of organic chemical reactions and organometallic chemical reactions; the molecular structures and the nature of interactions in weakly interacting systems; photochromism; stimuli-responsive polymeric materials; chemical sensors; reaction mechanisms in the formation of nucleoside; as well as the electron transfer mechanisms in nitric oxide synthase NOSs.
