tnA Happy New Year. This year is the last year in 20th century. We want to find something in the research work for the coming new century. By the way, do you know the Japanese company, YKK, manufacturing zippers. This resembles "Y2K", isn't it? [gif: 34K]

tnRecently, I found a "Shikishi" card as a gift from the members of Professor Uosaki's laboratory on my leave from there to Catalysis Research Center in September 1998. It was a kind of custom that a picture was put on the backside of the card. The "theme" of picture was typhoon because of its season. [jpeg: 34K]

Glass blowing work training for JICA trainees was held on June 10, 1999. Color images are available on clicking thumbnails and their hard copies can be printed out from your browser (about 50% reduction may be appropriate in printed size). If you can not use an adequate printer, please ask (ext. 3673 or ohtani@cat.hokudai.ac.jp) [jpeg: 64-88K].

Apparatus for photocatalytic reaction working from April 1999. This apparatus has been made by Ohtani when he was working in Kyoto University. The photograph was taken to use for a pamphlet introducing our laboratory in Graduate School of Environmental Earth Science, Hokkaido University for students. The light from a mercury arc seems so intense, but actually it is not so that there is few possibility of "snow blindness". Please see also a part of the pamphlet ([68K]) introducing our laboratory (in Japanese). [68K]

tnWe have succeeded in fabrication of two-dimensional chiral arrangement, "chiral surface", of an atropisomeric compound, binaphthalenedithiol self-assembled on gold. We have shown this picture to Professor Rohrer, a Nobel Prize winner in the field of physics and one of the pioneers of STM. This picture was shown on the top page (1999/2/6-3/3). [44K]

tnWe have much snow this winter season. She, Ohtani's wife, looks like a trainer of horses. In order to prepare winter drive, boots and a snow brush are indispensable. This picture was shown on the top page(1999/1/17-1999/2/5). [84K]

tnA happy new year! This year is "rabbit" according to the calendar in east Asia. Can you imagine rabbit by seeing this "peace sign"? We would like to enjoy chemistry also in this new year. This picture was shown on the top page (1998/12/29-1999/1/16). [32K]

tnA sign-board saying "Ohtani's Labratory" made by Ohtani's brother-in-law, a painter-printer. This was a gift when Ohtani became a research associate in Kyoto University, the first academic carrier. This picture was shown on the top page (1998/12/18-1998/12/28). [84K]
