Ilaria Cianchetta, PhD
Ilaria Cianchetta received her degree in physics in 2006 from the University of Rome La Sapienza. She completed her master’s degree in materials science in 2009 and was awarded her PhD in chemistry in 2013 after completing and defending her thesis, entitled “Fluorescent diamonds and nanodiamonds: from synthesis to characterization.” She moved to the US in 2013 to take up a postdoctoral fellowship at the Getty Conservation Institute, which she completed in 2015. She moved to Cell Press in 2016 to become Chem’s first scientific editor, covering physical chemistry. She was promoted to associate editor in 2019 and in March 2020 was promoted to the inaugural Chem Catalysis as editor-in-chief.
Ilaria Cianchetta于2006年获得罗马大学物理学学位，于2009年取得材料科学硕士学位，在2013年完成题为“Fluorescent diamonds and nanodiamonds: from synthesis to characterization”的论文并进行答辩后，取得化学博士学位。2013年，她来到美国，在盖蒂保护研究所攻读博士后，于2015年完成学业。2016年，Ilaria加入Cell Press，成为Chem的第一位科学编辑，负责物理化学领域。她于2019年成为Associate Editor，并于2020年3月成为Chem Catalysis首任主编。
Aims and Scope
Chem Catalysis is a monthly journal publishing innovative and insightful research on fundamental and applied catalysis,providing a platform for researchers across chemistry, chemical engineering, and related fields to disseminate and promote their work. The journal is a premier resource for scientists, researchers, and engineers in both academia and industry, bridging the multidisciplinary aspects and scales of the field. Chem Catalysis publishes experimental and theoretical studies in all fields of catalysis—heterogeneous catalysis, homogeneous catalysis, and biocatalysis—that report transformative methods, tools, and technologies that are of value to all communities. We give particular emphasis to reports that significantly advance our understanding of existing systems, expand the current knowledge with novel catalysts, and connect fundamental catalysis insights to the real world for the benefit of society.
Catalysis is a key technology for improving the efficiency and sustainability of the production of chemicals and is central to advancing research in renewable energy, healthcare, and environmental science. We therefore ask authors to categorize their research into at least one of the following five Sustainable Development Goals identified by the United Nations:
Good health and well-being (SDG 3)
Affordable and clean energy (SDG 7)
Clean water and sanitation (SDG 6)
Climate action (SDG 13)
Industry, innovation, and infrastructure (SDG 9)
Chem Catalysis publishes full-length research articles, reviews, topical perspectives, methods papers, and other editorial content of general interest to the broader catalysis community.
