R&D Term

2013 Dec - 2018 Mar

Outline of R&D Project

Porous Coordination Polymers (PCPs), which were developed in the ERATO KITAGAWA project, show high selectivity and capacity to adsorb/desorb certain gasses with rigid and flexible frameworks.
In ACCEL, we will work on the project to maximize potential uses of PCPs and realize the effective gas separation/storage technologies for energy and space saving, taking into account both cost-effectiveness and device downsizing.
