In order to solve the most important problem in the 21st century -energy, resource and environmental problems-, biomimetics that extracts or applies the function principle of the life and surpasses bioscience, is required to create. We are researching the "Green Chemistry in Water", in which "bio-inspired catalysts" with excellent reaction selectivity and low environmental impacts are developed.
