Research Group of Surface Chemistry (Yasuo Izumi Group)


This laboratory started on July 2007. Surface chemistry deals with the interface that is very reactive. Therefore, it is a research area associated with various unexplored chemical reactions. Global environmental and energy problems are solved with surface chemical reactions.

This laboratory is investigating surface chemical reactions over supported nanoparticles of homogeneously distributed size: 1 - 9 nanometers (low temperature oxidation, selective dehydrogenation, fuel cells related issues), surface chemical reactions in ordered micro/mesoporous reaction space (visible light-excited catalysis), and the removal of trace amounts of poisonous elements (lead, arsenic) in environment, all in the viewpoint of fundamental chemistry.

Because surface chemical reaction consists of dynamic, complex processes, it is ultimately important to monitor the active sites selectively under in situ conditions to elucidate new reactions. Therefore, this laboratory designs and develops selective X-ray spectroscopy to clarify the essence of surface chemical reactions. For example, this laboratory invented new X-ray analytical method for site structure selective not only for element but also for chemical state. Based on selective spectroscopy, basic principle of surface reaction is obtained to be applicable to biomass decomposition and fuel cells. Further, research is in progress to selective spectroscopy to obtain dynamic information for surface chemical reactions.
