Research Focus:

Organically doped metals, theoretical and experimental aspects of chirality, theoretical studies in symmetry, and sol-gel organic hybrid materials and biomaterials. Earlier major interests included fractal theory in chemistry and physics, and far-from-equilibrium phenomena such as chemically driven hydrodynamic instabilities. Prof. Avnir has co-authored 370 papers, which are highly cited (ISI: h=62, ~16,000 citations; Scholar: h=71, ~25,000 citations). He was the first Chairman of the Board of the International Sol-Gel Society (ISGS). Some of his recognitions include the Israel Chemical Society Prize (2011), and his placement on the Hebrew University's "Wall of the Innovators'' (2012), and receiving the Life Achievement Award of the ISGS (2103).
