We are pleased to present Professor Yusuke Yamauchi to speak on Toward Inorganic Total Synthesis: Materials Nano-Tectonics for Creation of the 2nd Generation of Porous Materials.

Time:   11am to 12pm

Date:    Thursday 10 August 2023

Where: AIBN Level 1 Seminar Room

Materials nano-tectonics is an emerging field that combines the principles of nanotechnology and tectonics to engineer functional materials with unprecedented control at the nanoscale. It involves the manipulation and organization of nanoscale building blocks to create intricate architectures and tailored properties. Through precise control over the assembly, arrangement, and interactions of nanoscale components, materials nano-tectonics enables the creation of structures with desired properties, such as controlled porosity, high surface area, and unique optical, electrical, or mechanical characteristics. Materials nano-tectonics finds applications in various fields, including electronics, photonics, energy conversion and storage, sensing, and biomedical engineering. In today's presentation, we would like to showcase a couple of our original materials developed by us and highlight a few recent advances from our research group.


Professor Yusuke Yamauchi received his Bachelor's degree (2003), Master's degree (2004), and Ph.D. degree (2007) from Waseda University (Japan). Presently, he is a Senior Group Leader at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) (on secondment from the School of Chemical Engineering until 2026). He concurrently serves as a Distinguished Professor at Nagoya University (where he holds the first distinguished professorship along with Professor Amano, a Nobel Prize winner), an ERATO Research Director at the JST-ERATO Yamauchi Materials Space-Tectonics, an Honorary Professor at Yonsei University (South Korea), National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), Waseda University (Japan), etc. and an Associate Editor of the Journal of Materials Chemistry A and Chemical Engineering Journal. He has published more than 1000 papers with >75,000 Times Cited (h-index >140). He was selected as one of the Highly-Cited Researchers in Chemistry in 2016-2022 and in Materials Science in 2020-2022. Recently, he was awarded the ARC Australian Laureate Fellowship in 2023.
