Hierarchically Structured Porous Materials: from nanoscience to catalysis, separation, optics, energy and life science

Bao Lian Su, Clément Sanchez, Xiao Yu Yang

Research output: Book/Report/JournalBook


Professor Bao-Lian Su is director of the Chemistry Department, Director of the Research Centre for Nanomaterials Chemistry (CNANO), and Director of the Laboratory of Inorganic Materials Chemistry at the University of Namur, where he has been a faculty member since 1995. Prior
to that he was Project Leader at Catalytica Inc. in the USA. He is also Changjiang Chair visiting Professor of the Education Ministry of China and selected as ?the Expert of the State of China? in the frame of ?Thousands Talents Program?. Prof. Su?s interests encompass the design, modeling, properties, fundamentals, and molecular engineering of organized, hierarchically porous and bio-inspired materials and nanostructures for nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology, and biomedical applications. His >230 peer-reviewed articles have been cited close to 3000 times Prof. Clement Sanchez is Director of Research at the French Council Research (CNRS), Director of The ?Laboratoire de Chimie de la Matiere Condensee de Paris? at the University of Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris, and Head of the Nanochemistry Division in the Cnano Ile de France. He specializes in the field of nanochemistry and physical properties of nanostructured porous and non-porous transition metal oxide based gels and porous and non-porous hybrid organic inorganic materials shaped as monoliths, microspheres and films. Sanchez has received numerous awards, including the French IBM premium for materials science in 1988, the Societe Chimique de France premium solid state chemistry in 1994, the French Academy of Sciences for Application of Science to Industry in 2000, and the 2007 Catalan-Sabatier prize from the Royal Spanish Chemical Society. Over 330 peer review papers (which have accumulated over 13000 citations) and numerous edited books stand to his name.
