The Chemical Society of Japan (CSJ) which started 130 years ago and has a membership exceeding 34,000, is one of the most affluent academic societies in Japan, covering most areas of pure and applied chemistry.

ACS Appl. Mat. Inter. 2018, DOI:  10.1021/acsami.7b17856
7 March 2018

Studies has shown that photogenerated electrons and holes can be directed toward specific crystal facets of a semiconductor particle, which is believed to arise from differences in their surface electronic structures, suggesting that different facets can act as either photo-reduction or photo-... read more

In this article featured as Frontispiece in Advanced Energy Materials, we undertake for the first time a mechanistic evaluation of the light-induced ion intercalation process that occurs in... read more

A review on photo-thermal catalytic conversion of carbon dioxide
5 September 2017

Carbon dioxide emission is driven by our incessant craving for a better quality of life and the consequent urbanisation and economic growth, which lead to ever growing energy demand. Hansen et al.

TiO2/porous adsorbents: Recent advances and novel applications
17 August 2017

After almost 40 years of research and study on photocatalysis, its practical application is still limited, mainly due to its slow kinetics and the challenges associated with reactor design.
