Jochen Jänchen studied chemistry and physical chemistry from 1970 to 1974 at the Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany. In 1983 he got his Ph.D. degree in adsorption and zeolite science. He continued his scientific work in Berlin and Eindhoven on projects in adsorption and catalysis. Since 1998 he works as a Senior Scientist at the Technical University of Applied Sciences, Wildau, Germany, and teaches renewable energies and energy storage at the University of Applied Sciences, Berlin, Germany. In the midnineties his research focus changed towards materials for thermal adsorption storage and heat transformation. Furthermore, he participates in projects of planetary research and is currently involved in the international research alliance Planetary Evolution and Life. He is the author and coauthor of more than 80 scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals and of 100 contributions to national and international conferences in zeolite science, catalysis, energy storage, and planetary research. Jänchen is an Active Member of the International Zeolite Association and of the International Solar Energy Society and cooperates since 1998 within the frame of the IEA, ECES Annexes, on phase change materials and chemical reactions for energy storage.
