Dr. Chularat Wattanakit, Vidyasirimedhi Institute of Science and Technology (VISTEC), Rayong, Thailand, has received the Wiley–Chemical Society of Thailand (CST) Award for Contributions to Green Chemistry 2018. The prize honors outstanding green chemistry research by young Thai chemists. The award was presented at the Pure and Applied Chemistry International Conference (PACCON 2019) in Bangkok, Thailand, on February 7, 2019.
Dr. Wattanakit’s research focuses on materials chemistry (porous materials, in particular), heterogeneous catalysis, and electrosynthesis. She is interested, e.g., in designing hierarchical bifunctional zeolite nanosheets, hierarchical zeolites/MOF composites, and chiral porous metals, in petroleum refinery based on hierarchical zeolite applications, and in bio-oil upgrading via catalytic and electrocatalytic processes.
Chularat Wattanakit studied chemistry at Kasetsart University, Bangkok, Thailand, where she received a Ph.D. in chemistry in 2013. She also received a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Bordeaux, France, in 2013. In 2013 and 2014, she was a Postdoctoral researcher at Nagoya University, Japan. In 2014 and 2015, she worked as a Researcher in the Heterogeneous Catalyst Unit of SCG Chemicals Co., Ltd., Bangkok, Thailand. Since 2015, she has served as a Lecturer at the School of Energy Science & Engineering (ESE) at VISTEC.
