Outline of the Project

Photocatalyst is a scientific technology of Japan origin. However, it faces a challenge to elaborate its efficiency. The principal investigator has developed morphology controlled photocatalysts (ex. morphology controlled TiO2). It could perform efficient photocatalytic activity which is superior to a traditional one. In the present project, our quadripartite team addresses the challenge of efficient conversion of CO2 by using newly-developed interfacial-morphology controlled photocatalytic electrode.
The high conversion efficiency of CO2 reduction might be achieved by concerted catalysis of both morphology controlled photocatalyst and its modification with monoatomic inorganic-organic co-catalyst. The interfacial-morphology controlled photocatalyst will be systemized as electrode system to perform CO2 conversion into valuable compound such as alcohol.
