Prof Junwang (John) Tang is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, Fellow of European Academy of Sciences and Professor of Materials Chemistry and Engineering in the Department of Chemical Engineering at University College London. His research interests encompass photocatalytic small molecule activation (including CH4, N2, H2O, C6H6 and CO2) to high value chemicals/fuels and microwave catalysis (plastic chemical recycling), together with microwave-intensified chemical processes, resulting to ~170 papers published in Nature Catalysis, Nature Energy, Chemical Reviews, Chem. Soc. Rev. Materials Today, Nature Commu., JACS, Angew Chemie with >14000 citations. He has also received many awards, the latest of which is the IChemE Global Business Start-Up Award 2019 and Runner-up of IChemE Global Oil and Gas Awards 2019. He also sits on the editorial/advisory board of several international journals, eg. the Editor of Applied Catalysis B and Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Advanced Chemical Engineering, Associate Editor of Chin. J. Catal. and Asia-Pacific Journal of Chemical Engineering.
