Rational Material Design in Nano-scale for Energy & Environment

The primary research goal of our group is to develop renewable energy sources and environmentally benign chemical processes that are essential for sustainable development of human society. Our researches also cover the development of advanced catalyst and storage materials that can contribute to the aforementioned issues, especially by using cutting edge knowledge on nanotechnology.
