Dong Pyo Kim's Biography



Dong Pyo Kim, Yonsan Chaired Professor, Pohang University of Science And Technology (POSTECH)

Prof. Dong-Pyo Kim is a professor of POSTECH Chemical Engineering department, and also a director of the National Creative Research Center for Intelligent Microprocess of Pharmaceutical Synthesis. He obtained Ph.D. in chemistry at Temple University in 1991, then post-doctoral research in University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Materials Science & Engineering), and joined Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology as a senior researcher. Prior to POSTECH at 2012, he had worked in Applied Chemistry at Chungnam Nat. University for 17 years. His microfluidic research has been rooted at materials chemistry of silicon-based resin (preceramic polymers, sol-gel). Since 2004, he has devoted to a microreaction field, covering the reactor design, fabrication as well as continuous-flow syntheses in organics, polymers and nanomaterials, currently focusing at scale-up microreactor for production of API and drug delivery systems.

Throughout a long endeavor, he published at journal Science (2016). The chip microreactor embedded with rapid mixing design enabled to handle a life time of highly unstable lithiated intermediates in the submillisecond range, which outpaced the rapid anionic Fries rearrangement and applied to the synthesis of a bioactive molecule.

He has published >250 peer-reviewed papers and 30 patents. He received Academic Excellence Award by Korean Chemical Society (2017), POSTECHIAN of the Year (2016, POSTECH), The Great Scientist Award (2016) and Best 100 Scientific Achievement (2014, 2007) by National Research Foundation. He was appointed as a Yonsan chaired professor by POSTECH at 2017.

Continuous-flow technology is emerging for efficient, sustainable and safe synthesis of drug and the precursors. Scale-up production approach is generally achieved by numbering-up microreactors in parallel as well as increasing channel size-up. At here, we present various economic numbering-up microreactor systems with robustness for scale-up production of several drug compounds. The stacked stainless steel metal microreactors and portable polymer pad are developed to demonstrate a drug via azide-alkyne reaction, fast synthesis of organophosphates in a cost-effective and single-step manner. Moreover, an upscaling photocatalysis in flow is also performed in an multi-capillary assembly system for synthesis of indazoles with improved productivity.
