Our laboratory has been proudly devoted to development of catalytic reaction process with low environmental load and effective use of biomass resources. We have focused on reaction analysis and catalyst design for various energy and material conversion process with solid catalyst. For detailed information about our research, please refer to the research introduction section from the link below.
