Lecture title: Microencapsulation as a Platform Technology for Developing Formulated Products


Zhibing Zhang


Professor Zhibing Zhang (ZZ) BEng MSc PhD DSc CEng FIChemE is Leader of Micromanipulation and Microencapsulation Research Group in School of Chemical Engineering, and Deputy Director of the China Institute, University of Birmingham, UK. Previously he served as Deputy Head of the School for 9 years.


He obtained his BEng in Chemical Engineering from Hefei University of Technology, China in 1982, MSc and PhD in Chemical Engineering from East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST), Shanghai in 1985 and 1988 respectively, and moved to the University of Birmingham, UK in 1989. Over the last 28 years, he has built up an international reputation for developing a novel micromanipulation technique to mechanically characterize single micro/nano particles for various academic and industrial applications, and for his novel research in encapsulation of different active ingredients for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, agrochemical, human care and fabric care applications. He was awarded Doctor of Science (DSc) in 2016 by the University of Birmingham, UK in recognition of his research achievements. He has collaborated with 41 international and national companies, and provided consultancy services to 26 companies. Recently he has set up a company called Microforce Measurement Ltd, UK which has a core business in providing services to test the mechanical strengths of micro-particles and micromanipulation-based instruments for measuring the mechanical properties of single micro-particles, particle-particle adhesion, adhesion and cohesion of fouling deposits.


ZZ is a member of the Editorial Boards of Journal of Microencapsulation, and Artificial Cells, Nanomedicine and Biotechnology, and International Advisory Board of Particuology, Senior Editor of Chemical Engineering of Cogent Engineering, UK representative to the Management Committee of European COST 840 on Bioencapsulation Innovation and Technologies, member of Consumers and Diversified Committee of Controlled Release Society, EPSRC Peer Review College and Engineering Panel, accreditation assessor and member of Education and Accreditation Forum of Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and Overseas Assessor of Chinese Academy of Sciences. Moreover, he is an adjunct/visiting/guest professor of ECUST, South China University of Technology, Sichuan University and China Ocean University.


His research has resulted in 140 academic journal papers, and 270 other publications including book chapters, conference papers, patents and a number of invited presentations at international conferences or meetings. His work on developing “perfume microcapsules for detergents” in collaboration with Proctor & Gamble Belgium was highly commended for the Global Innovative Product Award 2014 by the IChemE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SltXHwGDMqA).
