Introducing Energy & Environmental Science’s newest Editorial Board member, Kazunari Domen

We are delighted to introduce the newest member of the Energy & Environmental Science Editorial Board, Professor Kazunari Domen.

Kazunari Domen is a University Professor at the University of Tokyo and a Special Contract Professor at the Research Initiative for Supra-Material (RISM), Shinshu University, Japan.

Professor Domen received his B.S. (1976), M.S. (1979), and Ph.D. (1982) honors in Chemistry from the University of Tokyo. He then joined the Chemical Resources Laboratory, Tokyo Institute of Technology in 1982 as an Assistant Professor and was subsequently promoted to Associate Professor in 1990 and Professor in 1996. He moved to the University of Tokyo as a Professor in 2004 and was cross appointed by Shinshu University as a Special Contract Professor in 2017. He became a University Professor at the University of Tokyo in 2019.

His research interests include heterogeneous catalysis and materials chemistry, with a particular focus on surface chemical reaction dynamics, photocatalysis, solid acid catalysis, and mesoporous materials. Recently, his effort is focused on the development of photocatalysts for water splitting and the construction of practical solar hydrogen production systems.

Read some of Kazunari’s recent work in EES:

Design of semitransparent tantalum nitride photoanode for efficient and durable solar water splitting

Ta3N5-Nanorods enabling highly efficient water oxidation via advantageous light harvesting and charge collection

Probing fundamental losses in nanostructured Ta3N5 photoanodes: design principles for efficient water oxidation

Please join us in welcoming Professor Kazunari Domen to the Energy & Environmental Science Editorial Board!
