Prof. Zhaomin Hou
Executive Editor, The Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS)
Chief Scientist, Director, Organometallic Chemistry Laboratory, RIKEN Cluster for Pioneering Research
Zhaomin Hou was born in 1961 in Shandong Province, China. He received his Ph.D. from Kyushu University in 1989. After postdoctoral studies at RIKEN (1989-1991) and the University of Windsor (1991-1993), he joined RIKEN as a Research Scientist in 1993, where he is now the Director of Organometallic Chemistry Laboratory at the RIKEN Cluster for Pioneering Research and the Group Director of Advanced Catalysis Research Group and a Deputy Center Director of the RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science. He has been serving as an Executive Editor for JACS since 2021. He received the JSPS Prize (2007), the Mitsui Chemicals Catalysis Science Award (2007), the Chemical Society of Japan Award for Creative Work (2007), the Commendation for Science and Technology by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, Japan (2008), the Rare-Earth Society of Japan Award (2009), the Award of the Society of Polymer Science, Japan (2012), the Chinese Chemical Society Yaozeng Huang Award in Organometallic Chemistry (2014), the Nagoya Silver Medal (2016), the Chemical Society of Japan Award (2019), and the Japan Academy Prize (2022). His current research focuses on the development of new catalysts for efficient and selective chemical transformations, including C-H activation and functionalization, microstructure-regulated olefin polymerization and copolymerization, and activation and functionalization of small molecules.
