Catalysts Asia-Pacific Academic Forum 2021

Dear Colleagues,

At this special time of wonderful July, we would like to invite you to attend the Catalysts Asia-Pacific Academic Forum 2021. This forum will last for one day only, including two sections, and at the end of each section, we will take questions and allow time for discussion.

It is a great honor for us to have all of you here to attend this forum, of which the theme is the recent research of catalysis. In this forum, six keynote speakers from different regions of Asia-Pacific are invited to present their research. With many significant achievements, they are the most dynamic leaders in the catalysis field.

We will record the lectures, with the agreement of the lecturers, and deposit them in our online database. We will continue to build this database with brief introductions and summaries of topics across this fascinating field of catalysis. We hope that this event is of interest to you, and we welcome you to join us at this forum.

We look forward to seeing you at Catalysts Asia-Pacific Academic Forum 2021. Please find below an outline of the six presenters representing their broad range of research in the field of catalysis.

Date: 8 July 2021

Webinar Secretariat: [email protected]

The following experts will present and speak:

Prof. Dr. Junhu Wang

Prof. Wang graduated from Lanzhou University (1991), majoring in radiochemistry, and received his Ph.D. in inorganic and radiochemistry from Toho University, Japan (2002). Today, he is a professor at and the director of the Center for Advanced Mössbauer Spectroscopy (DNL2005), DICP, CAS. He is also the secretary general of the Mössbauer Effect Data Center, and execute chief editor of the Mössbauer Effect Reference and Data Journal.

Prof. Dr. Yi Gao

Dr. Gao obtained his B.S. degree (1997) and Ph.D. degree (2002) in Nanjing University. He worked as a postdoctoral research scientist at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He joined the Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics, CAS, in 2012, before moving to the Shanghai Advanced Research Institute, CAS, in 2018. His research interests cover the theory and simulation of surface science, nanomaterials, and biomaterials. Recently, his research has mainly focused on the methodological development of the first-principle-based atomistic simulation of catalytic reactions under real reaction conditions at the macroscopic timescale. He has published over 150 peer-reviewed papers, including research articles in Science (2), Nature Catalysis (1), Nature Communications (7), Science Advances (2), JACS (11), Angewandte Chemie (5), and PRL (3), as well as invited review articles in Accounts of Chemical Research and Angewandte Chemie.

Prof. Dr. Daojian Cheng

Prof. Dr. Daojian Cheng is a professor at and the deputy dean of the College of Chemical Engineering of the Beijing University of Chemical Technology and his work is mainly engaged in the theoretical design, preparation, and application of catalysts. His research directions include computational chemistry, electrocatalysis, and industrial catalysis. He has been published in 140 SCI papers (as the first or corresponding author) in mainstream international journals such as Nature Catalysis, PNAS, ACS Catal., and Ind. Eng. Chem. Res., which have been cited nearly 3000 times by SCI. More than 30 Chinese patents and software copyrights have been authorized or applied for with respect to his work. He also proposed a new method of catalyst design based on "structure descriptor". This method is simple and accurate in calculation and can efficiently screen catalysts. It has been successfully applied to the design of single-atom, electrochemical, and industrial catalysts. In addition, he proposed a new idea of combining multi-scale simulation, experiment and industrial application to study metal alloy nanocatalysts, which has been successfully applied to the rational design and experimental verification of metal alloy nanocatalysts used in industrial reactions such as wastewater treatment and ethylene epoxidation. He has been named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2016 and obtained and award from the National Natural Science Foundation of China--Outstanding Youth Foundation in 2018.

Prof. Dr. Takeshi Ohkuma

Takeshi Ohkuma received his Ph.D. in 1991 from Nagoya University under the supervision of Professor Ryoji Noyori. After working with Professor Paul A. Wender at Stanford University, he joined the ERATO Noyori Molecular Catalysis Project in 1992. In 1996, he became an associate professor at the Department of Chemistry of Nagoya University, and in 2004, he was promoted to professor at the Division of Applied Chemistry of Hokkaido University. He became the director of the Frontier Chemistry Center in 2013, and then served as the dean of the Graduate School of Chemical Sciences and Engineering at Hokkaido University from 2016 to 2018. His research focuses on the development of novel catalytic reactions that achieve a high level of reactivity and selectivity. Professor Ohkuma received the Progress Award in Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Japan, in 1997, the JSPS Prize in 2007, and the Japan Chemical Society Award for Creative Work in 2018.

Prof. Dr. Mingyuan Zheng

Prof. Dr. Mingyuan Zheng received his doctoral degree from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP), CAS, and then worked there and was promoted to professor. His current research interests focus on biomass conversion to high-value chemicals such as ethylene glycol, the catalytic upgrading of ethanol, as well as the synthesis and application of high-performance catalysts. He has undertaken many projects from NSFC, CAS, and international/domestic companies. He has published more than 70 peer-reviewed papers in widely circulating journals, such as Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Energy Environ. Sci., ACS Catal., J. Catal., Green Chem., ChemSusChem, AIChE J., and Chem. Eng. J. He has filed more than 70 Chinese patents (>50 of which have been granted), and more than 10 PCT patents.


Prof. Dr. Kotohiro Nomura

Kotohiro Nomura finished his undergraduate and Master’s studies at Saitama University in 1986 and the University of Tokyo in 1988, respectively, before joining the Organic Synthesis Research Laboratory, Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd, as a research scientist. He received his Ph.D. degree in 1993 from Osaka University (by thesis submission, supervised by Prof. N. Sonoda), and joined the group of Prof. R. R. Schrock (MIT, USA) as a postdoctoral fellow for 2 years. He then returned to Sumitomo and moved to the Nara Institute of Science and Technology as an associate professor in 1998. He has been a full professor at the Department of Chemistry of Tokyo Metropolitan University since April, 2010. His works has been published more 320 times and has received three major awards from the Chemical Society of Japan (1996, for Young Chemists in Industry), Catalysis Society of Japan (Society Awards in the industrial field (2001) and the academic field (2019)). His recent research has focused on the design of molecular catalysts for efficient carbon–carbon bond formation and chemo-specific organic transformations.
