Department of Chemistry  Ghent University, Belgium 

Over the past few years, tremendous efforts have been devoted to the development 
of porous organic polymers (POPs) for carbon capture, storage (CCS) and heterogeneous catalysis. Among POPs, covalent triazine frameworks (CTFs) a class of 2D porous materials are highly promising because of their easy synthesis, large surface area, tunablility, high stability, recyclability and most importantly low-densities. Therefore, significant attention has recently been given for engineering CTFs with different functional group for CCS and heterogeneous catalysis.

Himanshu Jena is currently a [Pegasus]2 Marie Curie Fellow at Ghent University, Belgium (2017-). Currently, he 
is interested in the development of new 2D materials for energy storage and sustainable chemistry. He received his PhD degree in Chemistry from Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, India (2013). After finishing his Ph.D, he spent 20 months as a postdoctoral researcher at Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Bhopal, India
(2013-2014) and 24 months as JSPS postdoctoral fellow at Osaka University, Japan (2014-2016). He published 49 articles with h index of 20 and I index of 33 (google scholar). He received several national awards and considered as top 1% reviewers by Publons (1305610).  Recently, he is interested in the developments of new materials for finding solutions towards the increasing global warming and climate change issues. He considers CCS and CCU as potential technologies that can tackle the biggest scientific challenges and can have a positive impact on the environment and the economy. Additionally, in the view of the growing population and fulfilling the energy demands, he trusts in the development of more efficient, greener and sustainable chemical materials and industries. He considers CTFs as class of new materials because of their unique characteristics. He also involved in the development of new metal organic frameworks (MOFs) and POPs as potential materials in CCUS technologies and chemical industries. He published his research in Angew Chem International Editions, Chemistry of Materials, Journal of Catalysis, Journal of Material Chemistry A, Inorganic Chemistry, Chemistry of an European Journals like top-class journals.
