Additional recommended knowledge
Ryoo obtained his bachelor's degree from Seoul National University in 1977, his master's from KAIST in 1979, and his doctorate from Stanford University in 1985. After completing his master's degree, he worked for three years at the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute. After returning to Korea in 1986, he took a position with KAIST and has remained there since.
In 2006, Ryoo and his research team announced the discovery of a form of zeolite that can catalyze petrochemical reactions much more effectively than previous zeolites. Because of the potential of this to streamline the gasoline refining process, it was greeted as a "magical substance" by the South Korean press.
