Prof. Jong-San Chang has been engaged in the development of nanocatalysts and nanoporous materials including metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and zeolites, and energy-related catalysis as well as green and sustainable chemistry including catalysis for biorefinery. Besides these areas, his present interests cover microwave synthesis, characterization, and applications of nanoporous materials and inorganic-organic hybrid materials. He has first realized the microwave synthesis of MOFs and proposed a new way for the selective surface functionalization of MOFs. Recently, he has also worked on heterogenous catalysis for biorefinery through the defunctionalization of biomass-derived chemicals to produce bioplastics monomers. He has published about 250 scientific research papers in peer-reviewed journals, contributed to edition of 4 books, and attended as an inventor about 80 patents (including 20 US patents) in the fields of nanoporous materials as well as heterogeneous catalysis.
