02 Nano Catalysts



Purpose on this research is to establish a new methodology for 3D imaging of the actual active-site (reaction sphere) in catalysis science, and design of highly active and efficient (active and chemo-, regio-, stereo-specific) catalysts on the basis of 3D active-site science.  The final target on this project is to demonstrate highly efficient catalysts and catalysis processes that should contribute to basis for establishment of green & sustainable society.

Target 1Synthesis of molecular catalysis, highly reactive intermediate as models for 3D active-site imaging

Synthesis of organometallic catalysts and/or highly reactive intermediates for efficient carbon-carbon bond formation, and reaction chemistry related to the catalysis.

 

Target 23D imaging of supported metal nano particle (cluster) catalysts

Synthesis of supported metal nano particle (cluster) catalysts with well controlled size for chemo-specific organic transformations.  Synthesis of new supported metal nano particle catalysts containing many dopants, interfacial heterojunctions.

 

Target 3Design of new catalysts on the basis of 3D active-site imaging

Design of highly active and efficient (active and chemo-, regio-, stereo-specific) catalysts on the basis of 3D active-site science, information of analysis of the actual active-site.
