Catalysis Research Center (CRC), Hokkaido University


     The Research Institute for Catalysis at Hokkaido University, founded in 1943, was re-established as the Catalysis Research Center (CRC) in 1989. In 1998, CRC was expanded to a center currently consisting of three divisions with nine areas, (eight professors, seven associate professors, eight research associates) and a Visiting Scientist Division with two areas (two professors (one of the two is a foreign scientist), one associate professor). It is well known that catalysis plays an important role in the areas of environment, energy and nano-technology.

At the beginning of 1999, an overseas branch was opened as Peking University-Hokkaido University Joint Laboratory at Peking University in Beijing, China. Research facilities were rented, researchers were employed, and instruments were sent to the laboratories from Japan. In May 2002, an official contract between the Department of Chemistry of Peking University and CRC was signed to support their international collaboration. An official contract for the collaboration with Department of Chemical Engineering of Petroleum University (Beijing) was also signed in 2001. The Petroleum University-Hokkaido University laboratory was established and is currently engaged in joint research.
