[Summary of the course] In this course, chemistry of energy and resource conversion will be explained as advanced chemistry of physical, inorganic and organic chemistry
[Aim of the course] Since environmental preservation is emphasized in chemical industry, biomass and hydrogen attract great attention as new resources other than fossil resources. However, it is necessary that fossil resources as well as the new resources also continue to be used. Student acquire the ability to explain how these resources will be used in the future and how they are converted to valuable chemicals by chemical technology including catalytic reactions and production systems.
By the end of this course, students will acquire the following abilities:
(1) Ability to explain chemical reaction and mechanism of conversion to fuels and valuable chemicals by carbon conversion of various resources.
(2) Ability to explain chemical technology related to energy and resource conversions in chemical industry.
(3) Ability to explain roles of energy and resource conversions in chemical industry.
Oil refinery, petroleum chemistry, biomass, hydrogen, natural gas, shale gas, coal
