Jinzhong LIU(刘金钟)
Position: Research Professor
Department: State Key Laboratory of Organic Geochemistry


I work on research of Kinetics of oil/gas generation, and develop new equipment for the research area. I had been a post doctor in Caltech from 1994 to 1998, when I came back to China, I established a laboratory for kinetics research in my Institute. Together with my colleagues in our laboratory, we have made research on oil/gas generation, oil cracking, carbon-hydrogen isotope of hydrocarbon etc., and provided services for oil company in China and the world. One of my new inventions is an intermittently opened apparatus which can perform experiments to simulate crude oil cracking in pressurized but open or intermittently open geological conditions. With this device, we can release all gases from the pressurized container and get gas yields, compositions of thermal cracked oil at different pyrolysis temperature, and let the remained oil continue its cracking process until all oil cracked.
