Catalyst chemistry, Synthesis of Nano-structured catalyst

■Research Keywords

Solid catalysts, New energy sources, Biomass utilization

■Research Interests

Studies on Development of Highly Functionalized Nano-structured Catalysts by Mechanistic Approaches
In order to develop highly functional catalysts, 1) Mechanistic studies of catalytic behavior of novel catalysts, 2) Mechanistic studies of metal nanoparticle formation, 3) Application and development of metal NPs stabilized onto solid catalyst (nano-catalyst), 4) Investigation of the bio-refinery over solid catalyst, were demonstrated.
