Professor Osamu Ishitani of the Graduate School of Science and Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan (161 KB)
We interviewed Professor Osamu Ishitani of the Graduate School of Science and Engineering, Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo, Japan). His research is focused mainly on artificial photosynthesis. He and Shimadzu started a collaborative relationship in 2012, which resulted in the QYM-01 photoreaction quantum yield evaluation system that permits accurate and simple quantitation measurements of absorbed photons.
Cutting-Edge Development of Artificial Photosynthesis That Drives Reduction of Carbon Dioxide (212 KB)To solve the three main problems of a shortage of energy resources, a shortage of raw materials for carbon compounds, and global warming, creation of an ideal artificial photosynthesis system using technology that uses solar energy to immobilize CO2 as a resource is considered and discussed.
|[New Energy] Due to the growing awareness of global warming, algal biomass has received attention as a new renewable energy alternative to oil resources. This article introduces an example of the GC-MS measurement of squalane hydrogenation degradation products obtained by modifying squalene with a catalyst.|
Interest in hydrocarbon-producing microalgae is growing in the field of renewable energy development. Research focused on obtaining petrochemical raw material from the hydrocarbons produced by microalgae is being conducted, and mass spectrometry is used in identification of these products.
Shimadzu Selection (88 KB)These articles were selected by Shimadzu. Relating to new energy, they derive from application notes and technical reports, and feature a variety of instruments and cutting-edge technologies.
