Julian R.H. Ross

Julian Ross has been actively involved in research on surface chemistry and catalysis for more than 50 years. Although he has always worked in an academic environment (UK, The Netherlands and Ireland), he has always been closely associated with industrial ctalysis companies and has acted as consultant to many those active in the field. He is author of more than 200 publications as well as of a significant number of patents on catalysts and processes; his work has been highly cited, his h-index in early 2014 being 40. He has supervised more than 50 PhD theses and some 20 post-doctoral researchers working on topics such as natural gas conversion, selective oxidation, membrane catalysis, zirconia as a catalyst support, environmental catalysis and biomass conversion. He was founding editor of Catalysis Today (Elsevier) and acted as Senior Editor of this journal for more than 25 years; in that capacity, he was responsible for commissioning and supervising the production of specialised issues reporting research on most modern areas of catalysis.
