Top Global University Project: Waseda Goes Global - A Plan to Build a Worldwide Academic Network That Is Open, Dynamic and DiverseWaseda University


Co-authorship paper of Prof. Niside and JA faculty member has been published on “Advanced Energy Materials (IF 21.875)”

Co-authorship paper with PhD student supervised by JA professor

Professor Nishide and joint appointment (JA) professor, Bjorn  Winther-Jensen published a joint paper,”Poly(1,4‐di(2‐thienyl))benzene Facilitating Complete Light‐Driven Water Splitting under Visible Light at High pH” on “Advanced Energy Materials”.

This paper’s first author is a PhD student who has been receiving supervison form above mentioned two professors. The paper wrote about their findings that the research group found out the reaction that a metal-free polyterthiophene film soaked in water generated hydrogen by sunlight irradiation. Water in the film was decomposed into hydrogen by sunlight. Hydrogen is considered as new energy which is clean and does not generate toxic materials.

Peer-reviewed scientific journal “Energy & Environmental Science”

Advanced Energy Materials” is an internationally well known high impact interdisciplinary journal, which covers  contributions on materials used in all forms of energy harvesting, conversion and storage.
