NanospaceScience for Energy, Environment and WaterResearch [Distingushedprofessor] Solid nanospacesenable to construct efficient sustainably engineeringConfinement in nanospacesnear ambient conditions induces high pressure reactions and phase changes: Atomically 1 D metallic sulfur crystal formation and accelerated formation of methane hydrates were evidenced.Kaneko LabKatsumi KanekoDistinguished ProfessorHe moved from Chiba University to ShinshuUniversity in 2010. He is challenging to apply nanospacematerials science to energy and environmental engineering. Carbon nanospace-aided methane hydrateformation can propose a new future plan how to convert CO2from industries into methane hydrate which can be used in cities.Classical H2(left) and quantum H2(right) in 0.7nm cylindrical spaceQuantum sieving can provide an innovation toisotopic separation which is associated withmedicine and computer technologies.Superlight graphenemonolithof 2000m2/gwas newly developedTransparent SWCNT conductive filmwith Fuji Chem.Co.71
