  • Susumu KITAGAWA

    Kyoto University, Japan

    Title (Tentative) - To be announced

    HOMEPAGE

    Susumu KITAGAWA

    Kyoto University, Japan

    Research Fields
    Inorganic and Material Chemistry, Chemistry of Coordination Space

    Research Overview
    Kitagawa's main research field is inorganic and material chemistry, in particular, chemistry of coordination space, and his current research interests are centered on synthesis and properties of porous coordination polymers/metal-organic frameworks.
    He was the first to discover and to demonstrate "porosity" for metal complexes with gas sorption experiments (1997), whose materials are called porous coordination polymers (PCPs) or metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). To date, MOFs are classified as a new category of porous materials, as opposed to the conventional classifications of inorganic and carbon materials. Kitagawa pioneered the functional chemistry of MOFs, and discovered flexible MOFs, dissimilar to those of conventional porous materials. Today several hundred different MOFs are known, and over 7,000 articles on this class of materials have been published annually worldwide. The research developments built on his discoveries are anticipated to lead to radical innovations in materials science, with wide-ranging implications for both academia and industry. Chemical industry firms are producing MOF materials for use in purification, storage, and transportation of gases, among other applications. Kitagawa's achievement has blazed a trail to a new era for porous materials, vital to addressing energy and environmental issues and contributing to human welfare.

    HOMEPAGE

    Ki-Hyun KIM

    Hanyang University, Korea

    HYU Distinguished Prof. Ki-Hyun Kim was at Florida State University for an M.S. (1984-1986) and at University of South Florida for a Ph.D. (1988-1992). He was a Research Associate at ORNL, USA (1992 to 1994). He moved to Sang Ji University, Korea in 1995. In 1999, he joined Sejong University. In 2014, he moved to the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Hanyang University. His research areas broadly cover the various aspects in the interfacing field of “Air Quality & Environmental Engineering” in connection with “Material Engineering” with emphasis on advanced novel materials like Coordination Polymers, especially Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs). He was awarded as one of the top 10 National Star Faculties in Korea in 2006 and became an academician (Korean Academy of Science and Technology) in 2018. He has been recognized as ‘Highly Cited Researcher (HCR)’ for 2019 in Environment & Ecology field from Clarivate Analytics. He is serving as associate editor of ‘Environmental Research’ and Critical Reviews in Environmental Science & Technology’ while being a board member in several other journals (e.g., ‘Atmospheric Pollution Research’ and ‘Sensors’). He has published more than 680 articles many of which are in leading scientific journals including ‘Chemical Society Reviews’, ‘Progress in Material Science’, ‘Progress in Polymer Science’, ‘Progress in Energy and Combustion Science’, ‘Chem’, ‘Nano Energy’, and ‘Coordination Chemistry Reviews’.
