David Fairen-Jimenez, a Royal Society University Research Fellow from our Department, will be talking on Naked Scientists show on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire on Sunday 24th July, 6 pm.
David will talk about his group's work and the future of fuels, advanced porous materials and its relation to gas transport and vehicles. In particular, he will talk about recent advances on metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). MOFs are crystalline materials with enormous internal surface areas of up to 8,000 m2/g, making them of interest for applications in gas adsorption and separation.
David is a Royal Society University Research Fellow leading the Adsorption & Advanced Materials Lab (AAM). His research interests are related to the evaluation of novel strategies in the design and development of advanced materials and supramolecular assemblies such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), as well as the creation of new experimental and computational methods for the prediction of their performance. In addition to energy-related applications, his research is extended towards the development of novel drug and siRNA delivery systems for cancer diagnosis and therapy. His work has been published in high-impact journals including Angewandte Chem., JACS, Chem. Commun., etc. He is indeed a prolific author, with 55 publications (h-index: 21), and has received several awards such as the RSC Emerging Technologies 2015 or the SusChem - Innova.
