People in the spotlight

People in the Spotlight – Dr Julien Mahy

Since the beginning of my research activities, I have always focused on the development of sol-gel materials and processes for environmental purposes with a strong emphasis on green synthesis and I hope to continue on this path for many years...

People in the Spotlight – Professor Ulrich Schubert

For me, a fascinating aspect of sol-gel science is that basic chemistry and technical applications are so closely intertwined. More challenging applications can only be developed if one also cares about the underlying chemistry.

People in the Spotlight – Dr Monique Deon

In my practice, I believe in collaborative and integrative work to develop science and individuals, and I hope to continue using the sol-gel tools for developing new therapeutic strategies to improve public health.

People in the Spotlight -Professor Massimo Guglielmi

From the beginning of my involvement in sol-gel science and technology, I was very interested in the application of sol-gel processing as a method for depositing thin coatings on different substrates.

People in the Spotlight – Professor María Vallet-Regí

Professor María Vallet-Regí. María’s sustained outputs during a career spanning over 45 years have seen her publish over 800 peer-review papers that have been cited nearly 49,000 times.

People in the Spotlight – Professor Michel Aegerter

People in the Spotlight - Professor Michel Aegerter. Michel’s interests in sol-gel science and technology were sparked following his subsequent move to Brazil in 1978 to accept a full Professorship at the Institute for Physics and Chemistry of the University...

People in the Spotlight – Dr Carolina Rosero

People in the Spotlight - Dr Carolina Rosero. My current research is focused on the synthesis of sulfide and oxide solid electrolytes, and electrodes for all-solid-state lithium batteries

People in the Spotlight -Professor Mari-Ann Einarsrud

People in the Spotlight - Professor Mari-Ann Einarsrud. Mari-Ann’s achievements in materials science have led to the publication of 250 papers involving more than 160 collaborators from 24 countries.

People in the Spotlight – Dr Mathilde Laird

People in the Spotlight - Dr Mathilde Laird. My work focussed on the organisation of silsesquioxane networks from the molecular scale (oligomeric silsesquioxanes) to the mesoscale (xerogels and periodic mesoporous organosilicas (PMOs)).

People in the spotlight – Professor Sidney Ribeiro

Professor Sidney Ribeiro Sidney published his first sol-gel paper in 1992, combining his background in the electronic spectroscopy of lanthanides and the sol-gel processing of cassiterite SnO2 , with Eu 3+ ions substituted on Sn 4+ sites.
