Lecturer: Dr. Kazuki Nakanishi, Associate Professor of Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University
Dr. Kazuki Nakanishi is associate professor, graduate school of science, Kyoto university. He obtained bachelor degree of engineering in 1983 from Kyoto university, Japan.
In 1985, he obtained master degree of Engineering from Kyoto university. He obtained doctor degree of engineering in 1991 from Kyoto university. In 1986, he became assistant professor of faculty of engineering, Kyoto university.
In 1995, he was appointed as associate professor of graduate school of engineering, Kyoto university. In 2005, he became associate professor of graduate school of science, Kyoto university. He has obtained several academic awards, including D.R. Ulrich award (international Sol-Gel Society) in 1997, Vittorio Gottardi award (international commission on glass) in 1999 and Academic Prize (the ceramic society of Japan) in 2006 and Commendation for Science and Technology (ministry of education, culture, sports, science and technology, Japan) in 2010.
From 2003 to now he is the board member of Japanese Sol-Gel Society and became vice president from 2013. From 2007 to now, he is the editorial board of journal of Sol-Gel Science and Technology, Springer and became the co-editor from 2009. From 2007 to 2013, he was the board of directors, International Sol-Gel Society and he was vice president from 2011 to 2013. He has published more than 300 peer reviewed publications with 13000 total citations (h index=56) and more than 40 authored or co-authored book chapters. He also owned more than 60 domestic and international patents. His research is focused on Synthesis of hierarchically porous monolithic materials in organic, inorganic and organic-inorganic hybrid compositions, and their applications to separation sciences and medical/catalytic/bioreactor devices.
Since the invention of monolithic silica column 20 years ago, continuous efforts have been made to improve the performance of monolithic columns as well as to extend the chemical compositions of hierarchically porous monoliths. Refinement of the macropore structure in terms of size and distribution resulted in the increase of plate number exceeding 200 000 plates/m. Column volume has been extended to nearly 1 L (2.5 inches in diameter and 10 inches long) applicable to preparative scale applications. Newly developed surface modification method using hydrosilanes as well as a glass-clad formation process will further contribute to fabricate high-performance, pressure-resistant monolithic columns. Highly permeable monoliths in silica and titania compositions have been commercialized as high-speed pretreatment columns suitable for DNA-purification, concentration of phosphorylated compounds, respectively. Various types of organo-siloxane macroporous monoliths have been synthesized and evaluated as solid phase extraction (SPE) devices and alkaline-resistant columns.
