About the Editor

Abderrazzak Douhal

Abderrazzak Douhal has been studying the photochemistry and photophysics of composites using silica-based materials for many years. He published around 200 articles, and co-edited 3 books. He is serving in the editorial board of several international journals. For his work on the photochemistry of silica-based materials, he was awed by the International Association for Advanced Materials (2016), and by the Japanese Photochemistry Association (2018) for his work on the photochemistry of MOFs. For the last 3 decades, his research work focused on femtochemistry in liquids and confining media. His recent interest is deserved to elucidating the ultrafast spectroscopy and microscopy of hydrogen-bonded organic frameworks (HOFs), metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and applications of their composites to lighting and sensing.
