概要 Overview


ChEM-OIL aims to develop unprecedented energy conversion and energy storage technologies via the integration of state-of-the-art materials based on metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), porous coordination polymer (PCPs), nanomaterials, and ionic liquids (ILs) with rational materials engineering, surface functionalization, and device design. Being a part of industrial–academia–government collaborative network, ChEM-OIL is consistently pursing to bridge the knowledge and technique gap between fundamental and applied researches in catalysis, electrochemical energy storage, and other energy and environmental related fields.

研究テーマ Research theme


Research topic 1: Basic technology / Development of MOF/PCP-derived materials
The structural and chemical possibility of MOFs/PCPs have been enthusiastically explored with the aim to reveal the relationship between the morphology and the physicochemical properties of MOF-derived materials. Our synthetic methodology involves the utilization of MOFs/PCPs as versatile templates or precursors to create advanced functional materials, especially carbon-based nanomaterials or carbon-metal nanocomposites, with unique morphologies and flexible chemical compositions at the macroscopic scale as well as tailorable surface and defect states at the atomic level.


Research topic 2: Development of electrolyte materials
Task-specific ILs and their feasibility as electrolytes have been explored with the ultimate goal to realize intrinsically safe electrochemical energy storage devices that provide decent performance over the ambient-to-intermediate temperature range, which are unachievable until now. New alkali metal ion conductors, such as composite electrolytes via the encapsulation of ILs within MOFs, plastic crystals, and inorganic low-melting molten salts have been studied. In addition to the role as alternative electrolytes, employing ILs as new reaction medium is expected to overcome the limitations of traditional solvent-based method for material synthesis as taking into account the excellent thermal stability and nonvolatility of ILs.



Research topic 3: Development of catalyst/electrode materials
A series of noble metal-free catalysts have been synthesized for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR), oxygen evolution reaction (OER), water electrolysis, hydrogen generation, CO oxidation, and liquid fuel production. The sophisticated incorporation of MOFs/PCPs and their derivatives as the substrate for metal oxide or transition metal nanoparticles helps elevate the material utilization efficiency and provides opportunities to tailor catalytic properties, paving the way for the development of cost effective yet highly active catalyst materials.
