Hendrik Verweij


Hendrik (Henk) Verweij received his BS and MS in 1975 from Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, and his PhD in 1980 from Eindhoven Technical University, The Netherlands. He was a research scientist at Philips Research Laboratories until 1991 where he studied glass fining and structure, insulators, superconductors, and translucent ceramics. Verweij was professor in Chemical Engineering at Twente University, The Netherlands until 2000. Since 2001 he holds the Orton Chair in ceramic engineering at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering of the Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA. Verweij’s expertise includes colloid & interface chemistry, solid state thermodynamics, sorption and transport in dense and porous matter, ellipsometry, wet-chemical and colloidal synthesis, and process control. His current research topics include synthesis and properties of homogeneous porous ceramics, ceramic membranes for CO2, H2, and O2 separation, and water treatment, solid oxide fuel cells, water and pH sensors, and magnetic ceramics.Pr
