About Me

Doron Aurbach is a full professor in the department of Chemistry, a senate member and the Director of the cleantech center at the Bar-Ilan Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials (BINA). Aurbach and his team study the electrochemistry of active metals and polar aprotic systems, the development of spectroscopic methods (in situ and ex situ) for sensitive electrochemical systems, the electrochemistry of modified electrodes, electrochemical intercalation processes. His group works on development of rechargeable high energy density batteries and EDL capacitors. The research group under his leadership also works on electronically conducting polymers and activated carbon electrodes, and their engineering, characterization and applications. Aurbach's group also studies water desalination by electrochemical means. Professor Aurbach published more than 380 research articles in peer reviewed journals and registered 25 patents. He awarded the prestigious Israel Chemical Society prize of excellence (2012) Landau Prize for Green Chemistry (2011), the Edwards Company Prize of the Israel Vacuum Society (IVS) for research Excellence (2007) and the Technology Award of the Battery Division of the Electrochemical Society (2005). He is a fellow member of the ECS (2008), ISE (2010) and MRS (2012). He serves as an associate editor in 3 electrochemistry journals: EES, JES (journals of the Electrochemical Society) and JOSSEC, J. Solid State Electrochemistry (Springer). He also serve as the chairman of the Israel Lab Accreditation authority (ISRAC), since 2010. The research group he leads is one of the biggest research groups in Israel (40 people, including 15 senior researchers with PhD). 30 graduate students received PhD and 35 students received MSc unser his supervision, since he founded the group (end of 1985). Recently (March 2012) he became the leader of INREP- Israel National Research Center for Electrochemical Propulsion a new national Israeli multi-institutional research center that develops alternatives to the use of petroleum for propulsion, to which 15 research groups from 4 academic institutions (BIU, TAU, Technion and AUC) belong.
