Mr. Kazuyuki Suzuki,
President,
Technohill.Co.,Ltd.
In 2018, the trend of regulations on chemical substances management in Europe and the United States changes. Concerning EU REACH, the registration of preregistered substances will be closed at the end of May 2018. To which direction European chemical substance regulation is going to go from now on?  I will explain the latest situation including REACH, CLP, BPR and practical correspondence that Japanese companies should prepare.
 On the other hand, the TSCA in the United States has undergone a major revision in 2016 for the first time in 40 years. In response to this, "Inventory Reset", "Prioritization Procedure for Risk Assessment" and "Risk Evaluation Criteria" was published in 2017. Especially "Inventory Reset" was requested for electronic application to EPA by February 7, 2018.     I will explain what the current situation of TSCA is and what should be done for that.

Synthesis of novel monatomic layers and the state-of-the-art characterizations by quantum beams
Dr. Iwao Matsuda,
Associate Professor,
The Institute for Solid State Physics,
The University of Tokyo
Monatomic layers are ultimately thin materials that show intriguing quantum properties. Many novel sheets, such as silicene or borophene, were discovered recently and the characterizations have been carried out by the state-of-the-art techniques using quantum beams such as synchrotron radiation photons and positrons. Today, we can precisely determine the atomic structures and directly measure the electronic states under the device operations. Details are systematically described during the lecture.

Highly sensitive photopolymers based on cascade-type molecular amplification systems
A system that amplifies the first stage of a photochemical reaction by connecting several thermochemical reactions is called “cascade-type chemistry”.  Cascade-type chemistry will enable us to create highly sensitive photopolymers, such as photoresists and UV curing materials.  We have developed compounds that generate organic acids and bases autocatalytically, denoted as either acid amplifiers or base amplifiers, because the number of acid or base molecules can be boosted in a nonlinear manner as a result of the autocatalytic decomposition of the amplifier.  Our effort has been focused on the development of these amplifiers, and on how to combine these acid or base amplifiers with photoacid or photobase generator systems, because a small concentration of photogenerated acidic or basic species may be amplified.  This results in a marked enhancement of the subsequent acid- or base-catalyzed reaction to provide novel photopolymer systems with a high sensitivity.

Introduction of analysis techniques of the mixture foreign substances, and some examples
Mr. Kazuya Nishimura,
Osaka Environmental Technology Center Co., Ltd.
The situation that "foreign substances get mixed in the products" may develop into a serious complaint related to the existence of the company.
