About the Author
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. Masakazu Anpo is a Professor Emeritus of Osaka Prefecture University (ex-Vice President & Executive Director) since 2015 (Osaka, Japan) and a Special Honored Professor & International Advisor at Fuzhou University (Fuzhou, China) since 2015. He is a pioneer in the research of photochemical reactions on solid surfaces, the design of highly efficient visible-light-responsive TiO2 photocatalysts, and single-site transition metal oxide photocatalysts constructed within the framework of zeolites and mesoporous materials for the issues of environment and energy. He is the editor-in-chief of the international journal Res. Chem. Intermed. (Springer), and has published many books such as "Photochemistry on Solid Surfaces" (1989, Elsevier), "Environmentally Bengin Photocatalysis" (2014, Springer) and reviews such as Chem. Rev., 114 (2014), Adv. Inorg. Chem., 72 (2018). He is a member of Academia Europaea and Science Council of Japan.
