About the Authors

Masakazu Anpo Author

Professor Masakazu Anpo is presently the Advisor to the President (ex-Vice President and Executive Director) of Osaka Prefecture University, and the Director of the R&D Center for Plant Factory and Ecology Research Institute of the university. He is a pioneer in the research study of photochemical reactions on solid surfaces including catalysts, and has published the first book in this field, “Photocatalysis” in 1988. The book, “Photochemistry on Solid Surfaces”, was published in 1989 from Elsevier. Dr. Anpo has received 7 awards including the award of Japan Photochemical Society, Catalysis Society of Japan, Chemical Society of Japan, and the Ministry of Education of Japan, etc. He has published 497 original papers and citation is over 18,000 times. He served as the editorial boards of numerous international journals and is Editor-in-Chief of the international journal, “Research on Chemical Intermediates” (Springer). His current research topics deal with the design of highly efficient visible-light-responsive TiO2 thin film photocatalysts and their application as well as the design of highly active single-site transition metal oxide catalysts within the framework of zeolites and meso-porous materials as photocatalysts for better and safe environment. His dream is the establishment of solar chemistry as a new environmentally-friendly science and technology, especially, he has a dream in the hybridization of artificial photosynthesis and natural photosynthesis.
