  • It is very important to study the electrochemical reaction not only for the fundamental surface science but also for the applications related to nanotechnology. Surface X-ray scattering (SXS) technique using synchrotron radiation is one of the most promising methods to investigate the interfacial structure with ultra-high spatial resolutions in situ. In this year, we determined the static structure and discussed dynamics of surface structure change of Au(111) and Au(100) single crystal electrodes during oxidation/reduction reaction cycle measured in a sulfuric acid electrolyte solution using a specially designed electrochemical cell. In this year, in situ structural study on Au(111) and Au(100) single crystal electrodes was carried out. At both single crystal electrodes, bilayer of surface oxide formed and structure of the interface was determined in details.
    On the other hand, as an aim of Pt reducing at a cathode in the fuel cell, Pt monolayer was deposited on the Au single crystal surfaces and high catalytic activity for oxygen reduction reaction was achieved at these modified electrodes.

  • Methods of Molecular Spectroscopy (B3): This subject is summation of Molecular Spectroscopy and Methods of Experimentals, which were opened from last year. As a first, the fundamental phenomenon about spectroscopy was lectured based on the quantum dynamics. After that, in order to understand the methods of instrumental measurements in the chemistry field, general fundamentals for instrumental measurements and operation of the signals from the sensor were discussed. This lecture was carried out in a seminar style.
    Electrochemistry (B4): Electrochemical methods were completely explained and electrochemical experiments were carried out for the bachelor thesis.
    Seminar in Interfacial Chemistry (M1, M2): This lecture was carried out in a seminar style. Today’s topics for interfacial chemistry were discussed.
