Design of “Intercalation Catalysts” by Use of Anion-exchangeable Layered Ni-Zn Hydroxy Double Salt

Prof. Yoshimasa Amano Chiba University, Department of Applied Chemistry & Biotechnology, Japan Abstract Layered hydroxy double salts (HDSs), which consist of positively charged layers and exchangeable interlayer anions, have also received considerable interest as anion-exchangeable layered compounds. Compounds in the HDS family follow the general formula MA2+1–xMB2+2xAn–2x/n(OH)2·mH2O (0.15 < x < 0.25), where MA2+ and…

Water environmental remediation techniques for removal of pollutants and Water environmenttrol of algal blooms in eutrophic freshwater systems

Prof. Takayoshi Hara Chiba University, Department of Applied Chemistry and Biotechnology, Japan Eutrophication is caused by large amount of nutrient input (mainly nitrogen and phosphorus) accompanying population growth, urbanization, and industrialization. In eutrophic freshwater systems such as lakes, algal blooms appear in summer, causing various water environmental issues. In our laboratory, we have aimed to…
