We are very delighted and proud to announce that Professors Mohamed Eddaoudi
and Yu Han
from the Advanced Membranes and Porous Materials Center at KAUST are listed as the world’s most-cited researchers for 2019.
Since 2002, the Highly Cited Researchers list from The Web of Science Group
has identified global research scientists and social scientists who have demonstrated exceptional influence – reflected through their publication of multiple papers frequently cited by their peers during the last decade.
For the sixth year in a row, the AMPM Center director, Professor Mohamed Eddaoudi, is recognized by his peers as an outstanding researcher in the field of Chemistry. Professor Eddaoudi, head of the FMD3 research group
, is one of the world leaders in the field of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), a unique class of porous materials poised to address many enduring challenging pertaining to energy and environmental sustainability.
“To be listed for the sixth year in a row in this prestigious list is a true testament to the high quality of our research and the research conducted at KAUST in general as evidenced by a large number of highly cited researchers in the 2019 list nearing 8%," Prof. Eddaoudi notes.
Yu Han was named to the list for his highly cited publications in the Chemistry and Materials Science fields.
“I am very grateful to KAUST for providing a unique research environment for its staff. This certificate is a recognition for my research accomplishments, as well as reward to KAUST's investment to its faculties,” Prof. Han notes.
Professor Han's research interests include the synthesis of nanoporous and nanostructured materials, the resolution of their complicated structures and the development of novel applications for these materials in catalysis, separation, adsorption, sensing, and laser.
“This outstanding outcome is the reward of our research in the development of a new methodology that enables atomic-resolution imaging various sensitive materials, and this achievement relies on the advanced research facilities (electron microscopes in particular) of KAUST,” he remarks.
