Chemistry of Clean Energy Conversion, Storage, and Production

Advances in Microwave Green Chemistry (#360)

Microwave chemistry is chemical science and technology that applied electromagnetic wave energy for a chemical process. Since discovery of 1986, only the effect of assisted chemical reactions has attracted attention, but the heating operation is not only a chemical reaction, and it is generally required for chemical process. Therefore, coverage of the microwave chemistry is a wide field of chemistry. The heating under the microwave irradiation has the mechanism of molecules-specific and nonequilibrium state, and it is clearly different from the conventional heating. The experimental and simulation results to indicate the mechanism under microwave condition also have been shown. It will not need the vague words called the non-thermal effect anymore. New actions of the microwave chemistry for the every chemical process on the basis of these mechanisms have begun. These are also related to a green technology. This symposium is intended for science and technology that applied electromagnetic wave energy to a chemical process such as inorganic and organic chemical reaction and synthesis, analytical chemistry, environmental chemistry, biological chemistry, process chemistry, novel techniques of microwave energy applicator design and supply, and so on.
