Catalysis Science and Its Contribution to Sustainable Development

In its pursuit to further develop catalysis science and contribute to Dream-Inspiring Innovation, Mitsui Chemicals has been hosting the Mitsui Chemicals International Symposium on Catalysis Science (MICS) every other year since 2003.

This year, Mitsui Chemicals held the Fifth Mitsui Chemicals International Symposium on Catalysis Science (MICS2011) under the theme of Catalysis Science and Its Contribution to Sustainable Development.

The symposium featured lectures from fourteen of the world's top researchers, including four Nobel Prize Laureates in Chemistry. The plenary lectures were given by the Nobel Prize Laureates in Chemistry Professor Yuan T. Lee (Academia Sinica, Taiwan) and Professor Sir John E.
