This title contains proceedings from the Fourth Tokyo Conference on Advanced Catalytic Science and Technology, Tokyo, July 14-19, 2002. The conference goal was to promote closer cooperation between industry and academia, to stimulate new catalytic technologies as well as fundamental research, and to create new concepts for the development of effective catalytic systems. It contains a selection of works, which present the most up-to-date research in catalysis.
- Presents the most up-to-date research work
- Provides reports on the latest advances in new processes and methods
- Contributes to a greater understanding of catalysis and stimulates further scientific research work in this field

Dr. Masakazu Anpo is the Advisor to the President of Osaka Prefecture University, and the Director of the Research and Development Center for Plant Factory and the Ecology Research Institute of the university. He is a pioneer in the research study of photochemical reactions on solid surfaces including catalysts, having previously published books including Photochemistry on Solid Surfaces (Elsevier). Dr. Anpo has received various awards and has served on editorial boards for numerous international journals. His current research interests deal with the design of highly efficient visible-light-responsive TiO2 thin film photocatalysts and their applications as well as the design of highly active single-site transition metal oxide catalysts within the framework of zeolites and meso-porous materials as photocatalysts for safer environments. His dream is the establishment of solar chemistry as a new environmentally friendly science and technology, especially the hybridization of artificial photosynthesis and natural photosynthesis.
