Prof. Toshiyuki Yokoi
"A new class of zeolite catalyst with location and state of active sites controlled" (tentative)
Institute of Innovative Research, Tokyo Institute of Technology
Toshiyuki Yokoi received a Ph.D. in 2004 from Yokohama National University under the supervision of Prof. Tatsumi. Soon afterwards, he became a postdoctoral fellow in his group. Thereafter, he moved to The University of Tokyo and worked as an assistant professor of Prof. Tatsuya Okubo from 2004 to 2006. He returned to the Tatsumi’s group in Catalytic Chemistry Division, Chemical Resources Laboratory, Tokyo Institute of Technology as an assistant professor in 2006. Since 2018, he is an associate professor, and a research unit leader of Nanospace Catalysis Unit, Institute of Innovative Research, Tokyo Institute of Technology. His research focuses on nanospace materials such as zeolite and mesoporous materials, and he aims to create nanospace catalyst that can make effective utilization of diverse carbon resources including naphtha, methane and carbon dioxide and that can contribute to the development of green production of chemical feedstocks and value-added chemicals.
