Outline Activities
Cellulose is an architectural polysaccharide organizing plant cell walls, and has characteristic structures and unique functions integrated during the cellulose biosynthesis. The material science of cellulose is now energetically pushed forward as follows: (1) In vitro synthesis of cellulose and structural polysaccharides, (2)Architectural and functional design of nano-structured cellulose layer, (3) Surface modification based on the molecular recognition of cellulose, and (4) R & D of catalyst paper for environmental and energy applications. Education and social activities are positively tackled for lectures, research guidance, patent applications and social seminars & symposiums.
