Greetings form the Director of the center

藤嶋 昭センター長

The photocatalyst is possible to utilize in the various fields. Our research is focused on to develop the transparent anti-fogging coating on building’s walls and glasses to the purposes of self-cleaning and to develop the efficient photocatalytic materials to purify the environmental air and water. We believe that the purification of water and air is most important thrust area of the research. It is found that the photocatalytic materials efficiently work to treat the viruses and cancer cells, thus the photocatalytic application can be extended to the medical cure for the cancer treatment.

The photocatalytic materials has such a great potential for industrial applications, therefore we would like to invite several industries and international researcher to take part in the photocatalytic research. As we have profound knowledge in the field of photocatalysis and vast experience with the photocatalysis based industries for the development of new photocatalytic products, we would like to work with more industries that are eager to develop new products using photocatalytic technologies. Also, many international researchers would be invited to take part in the photocatalytic research under this project. For example, the theme of the environmental cleaning group is to cultivate the medicinal herbs to produce useful herbal medicine at the plant factory using photocatalytic water treatment technology. Considering the current situation, Japan is one among the countries in the world leading the photocatalytic research. We strongly believe that our Photocatalytic International Research Centre would discover the much more important information and contribute to the world for further industrial development in the field of photocatalysis.
