Professor Mercouri G. Kanatzidis joins EES Advisory Board

Photograph of Mercouri G. KanatzidisEnergy & Environmental Science is delighted to announce that Professor Mercouri G. Kanatzidis of Northwestern University, USA has joined the Advisory Board of the journal.

Professor Kanatzidis’ research covers the design, synthesis, synthetic methodology, in-depth characterization, manipulation and potential applications of new substances with novel chemical, physical, or electrical properties. The work includes the solid state chemistry of chalcogenides, gamma ray detector materials, new thermoelectric materials, non-oxidic solids with open-framework structures, intermetallics from molten Al, Ga and In and redox active chalcogels.

Prof. Kanatzidis’ latest EES papers cover his exciting thermoelectrics research. Read them in full today:
