KAUST Catalysis Center Celebrates 5 Researchers
on Highly Cited Researchers 2020 List
We are proud to announce that 5 of our
academics have been named on the annual Highly Cited
Researchers 2020 list
Prof. Jorge Gascon – Chemistry
Prof. Magnus Rueping – Chemistry
Prof. Osman M. Bakr – Chemistry
Prof. Yu Han – Chemistry
Prof. Omar F. Mohammed – Cross Field
The strength of the
KAUST Catalysis Center is its unique combination of scientific expertise
accumulated under one roof—namely homogeneous, heterogeneous, photo- and
electro-catalysis, together with inorganic, organic, organometallic, polymer
and theoretical chemists, reaction engineers and spectroscopists.
The highly anticipated annual list identifies
researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or
fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last
decade. Their names
are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1% by citations for field
and publication year in the Web of Science citation index.
The methodology that determines the “who’s who”
of influential researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by
bibliometric experts and data scientists at the Institute for Scientific
Information at Clarivate. It also uses the tallies to identify the countries
and research institutions where these scientific elite are based.
‘’Honored to be part of the list one more year.
Credit goes to the amazing Advanced Catalytic Material group and to all our
collaborators”, said Jorge Gascon, director of KAUST Catalysis Center.
