About the Author

Professor Parvulescu received his Diploma in Chemistry in 1979 and PhD in Catalysis in 1986 at the Polytechnic University of Bucharest (Romania)., He joined the University of Bucharest in 1991, where become full professor in 1999. Meantime he received several fellowships: PECO and NATO fellow, Universite Catholique de Louvain, Belgium (1993, 1996), Alexander von Humboldt, Max Planck, Muelheim, Germany (1997). He is also invited Professors of a series of Universities: Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium), Aachen (Germany), Lille (France), Toulouse (France), Quebec (Canada), Taywen (China), etc. He has over 30 years’ experience within the field of synthesis of catalysts, catalysts characterization, asymmetric, environmental, oxidation, plasma catalysis, etc. He authored more than 265 papers, 16 monographies and chapters, 4 books (Wiley, RSC, Elsevier, Romanian Academy), 25 patents. He was awarded with the Prize of the Romanian Academy of Sciences and Proclaimed Knight of the National Order for Merit by the Romanian President. He serves as a President of the Romanian Catalytic Society and Secretary of the European Catalytic Society (2011-). He is member of the Editorial Board of Rev. Roum. Chim., Appl. Catal. A and Appl. Catal. B journals. In present he serves as Director of the Department of Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry and Catalysis and Director of the Research Centre of Catalysis and Catalytic Processes at University of Bucharest.

Professor Kemnitz studied chemistry at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (Germany) and finished it in 1973 with the diploma degree. In 1977 he received his doctoral degree at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin under the supervision of Dieter Hass with a thesis on kinetics and mechanism of solid-gas reactions. He was acquiring a Humboldt award for this thesis in 1978. After being for one year a lecturer for Chemical Engineers he returned to the Humboldt-Universität and finished his Habilitation 1986 on heterogeneous chlorine/fluorine exchange reactions. In 1988 he became an assistant professor and received a full-time tenure track in 1994, both at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. He was head of the Chemistry Department of Humboldt-University from 2001 until 2004. He is member of the editorial board of the Journal of Fluorine Chemistry. His main research interests cover the synthesis and characterisation of strongly distorted nanoscopic metal fluorides for applications in the field of heterogeneous catalysis, optics, ceramics, surface coating etc. He published about 400 papers, 9 review articles, 10 books and/or book chapters, and filed 12 patents. In 2010 he founded the “nanofluor” GmbH.
