Symposium

Catalysis and Catalyst Materials for Energy and Environment

Scope

Catalysis is essential in realizing a sustainable society. Various heterogeneous catalysts have been developed to contribute to the environment cleanup such as the purification of exhaust gases from automobiles and industrial plants, to produce important chemicals, and to convert energy efficiently. Recently, new and wide range of catalyst materials affords better designs of active sites that fine-tune the selectivity and activity of specific catalytic processes. “Operando spectroscopy” and “theoretical calculations” have also made remarkable progress in the past few years. Progress in these fields has opened new avenues for the design and development of next-generation catalysts based on new materials. For the future of catalyst and material chemistry, to organize emerging and closer cooperation among these fields seems indispensable. This session, therefore, hopes to lead such a discussion on the present and the future of research at the interface of catalysis, new materials, surface science, and theory by bringing together cutting-edge researchers in wide varieties of expertise. The session will consist of invited lectures, oral contributions, and poster presentations. The topics in the session are (1) new catalytic materials, (2) environmental catalysts, (3) energy conversion, (4) elements strategy, (5) operand spectroscopy, (6) theory and modeling of catalysts, and (7) green & sustainable catalytic processes.
