Research content
Novel catalyst is necessary for sustainable society utilizing limited resource and energy on the earth. Methods to obtain precisely designed and systematically prepared efficient catalytic reaction sites, inspired from structures in natural enzymes, have been developed. Such research and development of novel catalysts is aimed for contribution to global environmental and energy resource issues in near future. In addition, established methods and obtained knowledge will be applied to improvement of quality life and health as well as applications such as diagnosis and medical treatment.
