Catalysis is related to various fields such as chemical synthesis, energy conversion, syntheses of new materials and pharmaceuticals, and the design of novel catalysts using metal complexes and metal nanostructures is one of the most important targets in chemistry for sustainable society. The goals of our research are the artificial design of catalytically active structures on solid surfaces using metal complexes, nanostructures, nanospace for new catalytic processes, and visualizing of catalytically active structures, reaction mechanism, dynamic behaviors of catalysts, and microstructures of practical catalysts using the state of the art spectroscopy.
