Kazuki Nakanishi is an Associate Professor of Department of Chemistry, Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University. He became interested in the competitive processes between phase separation and sol–gel transition in 1986 when he joined Department of Material Chemistry, Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University. His research has been focused on the integrated design of hierarchically porous materials in various chemical compositions such as pure and complex oxide ceramics, organic–inorganic hybrids and colloidal systems. Monolithic silica columns for HPLC is one of his major inventions. He received D.R. Ulrich Prize in 1997 and ICG Prize in Memory of Prof. Vittorio Gottardi in 1999. He was awarded Academic Prize of the Ceramic Society of Japan in 2006. Kazuki Nakanishi is the author of >270 peer reviewed publications with >11000 total citations (h index = 53), the holder of >60 patents, and the co-author of 38 book chapters. He has been serving as a co-editor of Journal of Sol-Gel Science and Technology since April 2009. He is the member of the American Ceramic Society, Materials Research Society, and acted as a Board Member of International Sol-Gel Society (2007-2013, Vice President 2011-2013) as well as a chair of “XVIII International Sol-Gel Conference” in 2015 endorsed by ISGS.
Organic-inorganic hybrids derived from partially substituted alkoxysilane precursors can offer a variety of monolithic porous materials via a sol-gel process when their hydrolysis-polycondensation reactions are appropriately controlled to parallel the polymerization-induced phase separation. Some of our recent developments are described below：
