Content of research

Cellulose is the most common and abundant bioresources, mainly originating from higher plants. We extract cellulose nanofibers with widths of 3-15 nm from wood pulp, and are currently conducting the development of various cellulose nanofiber-based materials, such as transparent paper, for electronic, catalytic, and thermal applications.

Current Research Programs

  • 1. Printed paper electronics using cellulose nanofiber materials
    2. Bio-based nanofiber materials derived from cellulose, chitin, chitosan and so on.
    3. Paper reactor for continous-flow chemical manufacturing
    4. Heat/light controlling materials by using the chiral nanocelluloses
