Outline of Research

Our group is focusing on the research and development of novel semiconductor photocatalytic materials for a more efficient utilization of solar energy, as well as application of these materials for degradation of hazardous organics, solar hydrogen production and CO2 conversion to useful hydrocarbon fuels. Our research approaches mainly include composition- and morphology-controlled fabrication of nanometals, organic/inorganic semiconductor materials and integration of those materials for advanced utilization of sunlight and efficient conversion to chemical energy. Also, through conducting fusion researches between theoretical calculations and in-situ measurements, we are elucidating reaction mechanisms in order to provide crucial design guidelines for new material development, and lead to the discovery of new principles and functions.
