In this work, metal oxide catalysts, which contain “polymeric metal units” and/or “metal species with higher oxidation states” effective for selective oxidation, are designed and created. In addition, catalytic systems for “selective oxidative upgrading of lower hydrocarbons including methane” are constructed on the basis of the reductive activation of molecular oxygen and reactivity control of their active oxygen species. My final target is the development of methodologies that can design highly active catalysts (metastable phase) from the information on the calculation, synthesis, and measurement for isolated materials (stable phase).
