Yoko Sasaki (Graduate School of Science and Engineering) Receives Poster Award at 26th Workshop on Non-linear Reaction and Cooperative Phenomena

Updated Dec. 26, 2016
On December 10 and 11, 2016, the 26th Workshop on Non-linear Reaction and Cooperative Phenomena was held at Meiji University in Tokyo, where Yoko Sasaki of the Graduate School of Science and Engineering (Major of Applied Chemistry) received the Poster Award.

Sasaki discovered that when coupling an oleic acid oil droplet with a pH oscillating reaction, the droplet moves continuously, forming by itself a pH gradient that acts as the driving force. Her research work was one of the two outstanding awards selected from among 45 poster presentations.


Title of Presentation:
‘Autonomous movement system by the coupling between spontaneous motion of an oleic acid oil droplet and a pH oscillating reaction’


Presenter:
Yoko Sasaki
First year, Master’s Program in Applied Chemistry, Graduate School of Science and Engineering (graduated from the Faculty of Science and Engineering, Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science)


Co-authors:
Yasunao Okamoto (second year, Master’s Program in Applied Chemistry, Graduate
School of Science and Engineering)
Daigo Yamamoto (Assistant Professor, Faculty of Science and Engineering)
Akihisa Shioi (Professor, Faculty of Science and Engineering)
