Hisanori SHINOHARA received his B.Sc. in 1977 from Shinshu University and his Ph.D. from Kyoto University in 1983 in Chemical Physics. He joined the research group of Prof. Nishi as a research associate of Institute for Molecular Science (IMS) at Okazaki in 1979. He then became an associate professor of Chemistry at Mie University in 1988. He came to Nagoya University in 1993 as a full professor in Chemistry. He is the recipient of the Japan Mass Spectrometry prize (1991), the Japan Metal Society prize (1994), the Japan IBM Science prize (1996), Molecular Science Forum Lectureship at Chinese Academy of Science (2002), Ishikawa Carbon Prize (2006), Japan Chemical Society Award (2010), Chunich Cultural Award (2011), Japan Society of Applied Physics Outstanding Paper Award (2012), The Medal of Honor with Purple Ribbon (2016) and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC) (2016). He is widely known for his achievement on the production and characterization of endohedral metallofullerenes, new types of carbon nanotubes and novel carbon nanotube materials. Totally, he has published over 560 original and peer-reviewed scientific papers including approximately 400 in the top physics and chemistry journals, and more than 50 review papers in journals and books. He has also presented a lot of invited lectures/seminars and conference talks. He is also the members of Japan Chemical Society, Japan Physical Society, Japan Mass Spectrometry Society, Materials Research Society (U.S.A.), Electrochemical Society (U.S.A.), American Association for the Advancement of Science (U.S.A.), and serves as referees in many international journals in chemistry, physics and materials science. He is currently the Director of Institute for Advanced Research (IAR) in Nagoya University. abstract
