We thank very much all the participants for cooperation.



You are cordially invited to participate in the CRC International Symposium on Photochemistry at Interfaces (PC@if) to be held at the Hokkaido University Conference Hall in Sapporo, Japan, from August 9-11, 2002. This symposium is organized as the 13th annual international symposium of Catalysis Research Center, Hokkaido University.

scope of the symposium

This symposium is held with the aim of the covering the latest developments in the field of photochemistry at interfaces. The subjects include but not limited to the photochemical, photocatalytic and photoassisted reactions at interfaces between solid-gas, solid-liquid, or liquid-liquid, including those at single crystal as well as particles and thin films. Development of novel techniques to study the structural characteristics of interfaces will be also discussed.

official language

The official language of the symposium will be English. No interpretation is available.
