We are delighted to welcome Professor Mircea Dincă as Chemical Science Associate Editor, handling submissions in the area of materials.
Mircea Dincă grew up in Romania and moved to the US to study for a Bachelor’s degree at Princeton University. From here, he graduated with a BA in Chemistry in 2003. Following graduate studies in Inorganic Chemistry at UC Berkeley, Mircea moved to MIT for a postdoctoral appointment in 2008, and was offered an Assistant Professor position in the Department of Chemistry at MIT starting in 2010. Mircea was then promoted to Associate Professor in 2015 and offered tenure in 2017.
Mircea’s research interests lie in the synthesis of new multifunctional materials for applications in electrical and electronic devices, heterogeneous catalysis, and various uses in clean and renewable energy. In recognition of Mircea’s group’s research, he has been awarded the Alan T. Waterman Award from the NSF in 2016 and the ACS Award in Pure Chemistry in 2018, among several others.
Mircea is keen to receive submissions in his area of expertise, particularly MOF-related and multi-functional material research. Below is a list of recent Chemical Science articles published within the MOF-related field – all free to read. We hope you enjoy them!
