Mitsui Chemicals, in its pursuit to further develop catalysis science and contribute to “Dream-Inspiring Innovation”, has been hosting the Mitsui Chemicals International Symposium on Catalysis Science (MICS) every other year since 2003.
This year, Mitsui Chemicals held The Fourth Mitsui Chemicals International Symposium on Catalysis Science (MICS2009), under the theme of “Catalysis Science and Its Contribution to Future Human Development”.
The symposium featured lectures from ten of the world's top researchers in catalysis science, including the 1981 Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry, Prof. Roald Hoffmann, and the 2001 Wolf Prize Laureate in Chemistry, Emeritus Professor Henri B. Kagan.
In this video, we report on the ten lectures, plus the two commemorative lectures, the 2009 Mitsui Chemicals Catalysis Science Award ceremony, and other associated events.
