M. Jaroniec works as a Professor of chemistry at Kent State University, USA, since 1991. Before joining this institution, he served as a Professor of chemistry at M. Curie-Sklodowska University, Poland, where he received his Ph.D. degree in 1976. He has published over 900 papers in the areas of adsorption, chromatography, chemistry of nanoporous materials, and self-assembled ordered mesoporous materials. He served as a coeditor of three volumes the journal titled Nanoporous Materials and of another volume of the journal titled Nanoporous Materials. He coedited special issues of Chemistry Materials devoted to templated materials and Journal Materials Chemistry devoted to advanced materials in water treatment. He coauthored a book titled Physical Adsorption on Heterogeneous Solids (1988). His research interests revolve primarily around interdisciplinary topics of interfacial chemistry, chemical separations, and chemistry of materials, including physical adsorption at the gas/solid and liquid/solid interfaces, gas and liquid chromatography, synthesis of adsorbents, chromatographic packings, catalysts, and ordered nanoporous materials. At Kent State University, he has established a vigorous research program in the area of advanced nanomaterials, such as surfactant- and polymer-templated mesoporous silicas, organosilicas, and inorganic oxides and carbons.
