  • Profile

    Prof Zhiyong Gao received his Ph.D degree in Minerals Processing Engineering from Central South University (CSU), China in 2013, and now is professor and vice dean in the School of Minerals Processing and Bioengineering at CSU. His research interests embrace mineral crystal chemistry, flotation reagent design, and grinding media technology. The surface broken bond density (Db) index proposed by Zhiyong Gao has been widely accepted as a rapid way to study mineral surfaces and to assess their surface reactivity. This Db index has interestingly also been more widely recognized and applied in such different areas as material science, crystal growth, geochemistry, mineralogy, etc. Zhiyong’s research activities have also included extensive use of AFM and DFT on molecular recognition for the development of a series of novel collectors and reagent mixtures for improving the separation selectivity when treating different minerals. Zhiyong has developed a method to regulate the crystal surface exposure and hence particle reactivity of different minerals by optimizing the grinding media parameters. Based on these fundamental studies, various new reagent schemes and grind technologies have been developed and utilized to optimize the currently used separation process and address key environmental and energy-related challenges in mineral processing. He has published 50+ papers with a H-index of 26 and 2200 citations. He also held 13 authorized patents. He has received numerous awards and honors including the MEI Young Person's Award, the China-Australia Young Scientist Exchange Award, and The Young Elite Scientists Award by China Association for Science and Technology.
