Hua Cui 

Portrait_Cui_Hua_95x120px
Hua Cui is full Professor of Analytical Chemistry at University of Science and Technology of China, China. She received her Ph.D. from University of Science and Technology of China in 1990. She was appointed as a lecturer in 1990, as an associate professor in 1995 and as a professor & head in 2000 in Analytical Division, Department of Chemistry, University of Science and Technology of China. During the time, she also conducted some research work as a postdoctoral at Department of Pharmaceutical Analysis, Faculty of Pharmacy, Utrecht University. She received the Award for The National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars from The National Natural Science Foundation of China in 2006, Liang Shuquan Award for Basic Research in Analytical Chemistry from Chinese Chemical Society in 2012, Award for 4nd Ten Outstanding Women Award from The Chinese Academy of Science in 2013 and Outstanding Women Analytical Chemist Award from Analytical Chemistry Division of Chinese Chemical Society in 2015. In 2014, she was appointed as a Member of the Council of the International Society of Bioluminescence and Chemiluminescence for the period 2015-2016.
Dr Cui’s research interests are analytical chemiluminescence (CL) and electrochemiluminescence (ECL), and their applications in interdisciplinary fields including public health, food safety, and environmental monitoring. Over the past 20 years, great progress has been made by her research group to develop new CL/ECL-based analytical concept and principle and to better understand these analytical methods. Her group has developed a potential-resolved ECL method that has become an effective tool for studying ECL mechanisms. Her group has pioneered the study of metal nanoparticle-initiated CL and ECL, and developed direct strategies for the preparation of a variety of CL/ECL functionalized nanomaterials and ultrasensitive CL/ECL methods for bioassays. Very recently, ground breaking progress has been made in CL reagent/catalyst bifunctionalized nanomaterials, which enabled unique and superior catalytic activity for the catalysts grafted on the surface of CL/ECL functional nanomaterials. These results have provided novel strategies to address fundamental challenges of CL and ECL as powerful analytical and bioanalytical methods. Moreover, Dr. Cui has authored and co-authored over 140 publications on reputed international journals and 1 international patent and 3 China patents on CL/ECL functionalized nanomaterials and their applications in bioassays; She has been invited to deliver plenary lectures at international conferences on chemiluminescence and electrochemiluminescence.

    Aims and Scope

    Close

    Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry’s mission is the rapid publication of excellent and high-impact research articles on fundamental and applied topics of analytical and bioanalytical science. Its scope is broad, encompassing the entire range of analytical and bioanalytical research and encouraging multidisciplinary solutions to problems in this field.    

    The Editors encourage submissions presenting novel analytical research in instrumentation, method development, and applications, including, for example,

    • mass spectrometry and atomic spectroscopy;
    • separations and hyphenated techniques;
    • analytical approaches in “-omics” and imaging;
    • analytical characterization of nano- and biomaterials;
    • miniaturized devices, medicinal diagnostics, sensors, chemometrics, and sampling methods.

    Applications should be innovative and presen­ted with complete validation including analysis of real world samples. The new contribution in comparison to existing methods should also be stressed. Moreover, the Editors encourage authors to add unsuccessful approaches in the experimental section in addition to the detailed description of successful experiments.

    The journal publishes Critical Reviews and Trend Articles, Research Papers, Rapid Communications. All papers are subject to a strict peer review. Guided by peer reviews, the Editors select a number of exceptional papers for accelerated publication as ‘Papers in Forefront’. Also published are ABC Spotlights and Feature Articles on selected topics as well as Letters to the Editor as a medium of discussion and exchange of opinions. Additional features are ABC’s general-interest columns geared to the practical needs of modern analytical scientists (e.g. Analytical Challenge, ABCs of Education and Professional Development in Analytical Science).

    Presented annually, the ABC Best Paper Award honors the young author of an outstanding research paper published in the journal. Aiming to encourage young scientists in establishing their careers, it is given to the lead author of a research paper who is up to 40 years of age.

    The journal discourages submissions of limited international interest or limited analytical novelty or lacking a substantial impact on analytical and bioanalytical science. Papers that merely comprise data collections, based on the use of routine analytical or bioanalytical methods, are also not acceptable.

    Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry is a merger and also continuation of Fresenius' Journal of Analytical Chemistry, Analusis, Química Analítica, and Chemical Analysis/Chemia Analityczna.

    The journal is partly owned by major chemical societies: German Chemical Society (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker, GDCh), Chemical Society of France (Société Chimique de France, SCF), Spanish Society for Analytical Chemistry (Sociedad Española de Química Analítica, SEQA) and Royal Spanish Society of Chemistry (Real Sociedad Española de Química, RSEQ ), Austrian Society for Analytical Chemistry (Österreichische Gesellschaft für Analytische Chemie, ASAC), Division of Analytical Chemistry of the Swiss Chemical Society (Division Analytische Chemie der Schweizerischen Chemischen Gesellschaft, DAC/SCS), Italian Chemical Society (Società Chimica Italiana, SCI), and Polish Chemical Society (Polskie Towarzystwo Chemiczne, PTChem). This close relationship ensures that the journal is exceptionally well-positioned to understand, anticipate and fulfill the needs of scientists in this field.
