May 2021 special issue of RPC to honour Prof. Güven
Radiation Physics and Chemistry will publish a virtual special issue to honor Professor Olgun Güven of Hacettepe University in Ankara, Turkey on the occasion of his 75th birthday.
One of the most prominent experts in radiation chemistry of polymers and an IMRP Laureate, Prof. Güven significantly contributed to many aspects of radiation chemistry of polymers though his more than 350 publications. . One of his most important achievements are the first demonstration of controlled radical polymerization (RAFT) in radiation grafting as well as synthesizing nanostructured “intelligent” membranes by radiation grafting of stimuli-sensitive polymers inside tracks of ion-track membranes.
While his h-index of 48 and citation number of over 8200 alone place him in the top tier of radiation chemists, he is also well known for his activities in transferring his knowledge into practical applications, and sharing his knowledge and skills for the benefit of laboratories and industries in less developed countries.
The guest Editor of this special issue is Prof. Piotr Ulanski of Lodz University of Technology.
