エネルギーの高度有効利用と環境保全に向けた機能無機材料の開発

ResearchRESEARCH

   For sustainable development, it is indispensable to improve further conventional energy conversion methods as well as to develop new conversion technology that helps minimize the environmental impact by conversion and use of energy. An epoch-making progress in energy conversion systems has often been brought by development of key materials.
   We are focusing on synthesis of novel functional inorganic materials that contribute to efficient energy conversion and environmental preservation by combining various substances such as metal, polymer, and inorganic materials. We investigate the materials and systems related to fuel cells, hydrogen production, and catalytic combustion.

  • Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC)

       ・Internal steam reforming on SOFC using metal-oxide cermet
       ・Development of new cathode material
       ・Ammonia fueled SOFC
       ・Analysis of electrode microstructure by focus ion beam-scanning electron microscope (FIB-SEM)

  • Fuel cell employing anion conductive electrolyte

       ・Anion exchange membrane fuel cell
       ・Application of ammonia fuel
       ・Development of new anode material for ammonia oxidation
       ・Evaluation of fundamental property at high temperatures

  • Development of catalysts for hydrogen production and environmental protection

       ・Steam reforming of methanol, ethanol, and dimethyl ether
       ・Ammonia decomposition
       ・Soot oxidation
