Maria-Magdalena Zaharescu (born 1938) is a Romanian chemist, specializing in the physical chemistry of oxide systems.[1]

Dr. Zaharescu was a Senior Researcher and Head of Department at the “Ilie Murgulescu” Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Romanian Academy in Bucharest.[2][3][4] In 2001, she was elected a corresponding member of the Romanian Academy and became a full member in June 2015.[5] On December 1, 2017, she was awarded a Knight of the Order of the Star of Romania.[6]

She was one of the 100 women scientists featured in "Successful Women Ceramic and Glass Scientists and Engineers: 100 Inspirational Profiles" [7] by Lynnette Madsen (2016).

Scientific Interests[edit]

Her scientific interests include:[8]

  • Physical chemistry of oxide systems (reactions mechanisms, thermal phase equilibria, structure-properties correlations).
  • Sol-gel science (sol-gel chemistry, nanostructured oxide films and powders, inorganic-organic hybrids, nanocomposites, oxide nanotubes). She introduced and developed the field of sol-gel research in Romania.[9]
  • Vitreous oxide systems with special properties (thermally and chemically stable)

Education[edit]

Scientific Activity[edit]

Books[edit]

  • In 2016, Dr. Zaharescu published 1D Oxide Nanostructures Obtained by Sol-Gel and Hydrothermal Methods,[16] as part of the SpringerBriefs[17] series offered by the Springer Publishing Company.
