Catalytic oxidation is an important class of reaction, especially for converting fossil fuel resources into energy and useful chemical products. In addition, the demand for high energy and resource efficiency in manufacturing processes has been growing. We are developing sophisticated design and synthetic methods for catalytic materials that can convert biomass and oxidize alkanes into useful chemicals efficiently.
