Sanjay Mathur (born July 2, 1968) is an Indian inorganic chemist, current president (Oct. 2022 – Oct. 2023) of the American Ceramic Society, acting director of the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Cologne, honorary co-director of the Institute of Renewable Energy Sources at the Xi’an Jiaotong University, a World Class University Professor at the Chonbuk University. He is an adjunct professor at the Indian Institutes of Technology and has held visiting professorships at the Central South University, the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, and the National Institute of Science Education and Research. He was awarded the Honorary Doctorate from Vilnius University in 2016. He is an elected fellow of the American Ceramic Society, the American Society for Metals, the European Science Academy, and the Indian National Science Academy and has been awarded the fellowships of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. Mathur is known for his library of single source precursors for the production of nanostructured ceramic materials with tailormade properties and, with an h-index of 70 and over 18000 citations, he is among the highly cited scientists in the field of ceramics.
In 1994 he moved to Germany and joined the Saarland University as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow (1994-1996). Following this, he worked for his habilitation (2004) and became the head of the Physical and chemical vapor deposition division at the Institute of New Materials (2002-2008) in Saarbrücken. Sanjay Mathur accepted an offer from Würzburg University in 2006 to become a Professor of Inorganic Chemistry and established a research program on the synthesis of nanomaterials and thin film systems by means of chemical vapor deposition using chemically tailored organometallic precursors. In 2008, he was offered a full professorship in Inorganic and Materials Chemistry at the University of Cologne which he accepted. He established the Steinbeis technology-transfer center Materials Alliance Cologne, which supports small- and medium-sized enterprises to innovate their technology portfolio.
Sanjay Mathur serves as a Board member for the German Ceramic Society and the Federation of chemical industries ChemCologne in Rhineland. Mathur has mentored a number of doctoral and postdoctoral researchers from a large number of nations. He has also served as the “International Ambassador” of the University of Cologne to foster international collaboration. He has received calls as the director of the Institute for Functional Materials at KTH Royal Institute of Technology (2013) and director of the Institute for Technologies of Ceramic Components and Composites at Stuttgart University (2020).
Sanjay Mathur has developed advanced technical expertise and insight into the development of chemical concepts for the synthesis and processing of nanostructured ceramics and composites for energy and health applications. He has made pioneering contributions in demonstrating the potential of chemical processing of materials by transforming specially designed chemical precursors into nanocrystalline ceramics and composites. His group has developed new concepts for processing metal oxide nanoparticles, nanowires, and nanostructured coatings for applications targeting bio-medical (drug delivery, implant integration), sensors (gas and humidity), protective (barrier and corrosion-resistant coatings) and functional surfaces (TCOs, photo-catalytic, hydrophobic/hydrophilic). He has coordinated many joint research projects with European Consortia and industry and he has been actively involved in technology transfer and industrial collaboration in the field of sensors, electrodes, filters, catalytic supports, and battery applications.
