Preface Res. Chem. Intermed., Vol. 34, Nos 8–9, p. 661 (2008) Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, 2008. Also available online - The 11th Korea–Japan Symposium on Catalysis was held from the 21–23 May, 2007 at Yonsei University (Seoul, South Korea). It was the continuation of the joint catalysis symposium between Japan and Korea, promoting the close and warm relationship between our country’s scientists. This 11th meeting was organized by the Catalysis Division of the Korean Institute of Chemical Engineers and chaired by Prof. Yong-Gun Shul (Yonsei University) with Prof. Shinichi Nakata (Akita University) as the Japanese coordinator. In this symposium, 180 titles related to energy, environment and catalytic chem- istry were presented as oral and poster presentations with more than 300 scientists attending. The plenary lectures were given by Profs Wataru Ueda and Son-Ki Ihm. A day earlier, a Young Scientist Session was held and this has become another tradition since the 9th meeting which was held in Osaka. This year, there were 73 research works from graduate students and young researchers. On the occasion of this meeting, Profs Yoshio Ono and Young-Gul Kim gave lectures on the Recent Progress in Solid Base Catalysis and the history of the cultural exchanges between Korea and Japan. This symposium has not only played a positive, significant role in the development of advanced catalytic science and mutual understanding, but also contributed to a better future for our respective societies by engaging the young people to come together for discussions and exchanges. For this successful symposium, we would like to express our sincere thanks to Profs Kwan-Young Lee, Han-Sung Kim, Jae-Sung Lee and Wha-Seung Ahn as members of the Organizing Committee. Also, this kind of great event could not be carried out without the strong contributions from the industry and government, and we would like to thank them for their generous financial support. In this Special Issue of Research on Chemical Intermediates, we present 28 excel- lent, selected articles from this symposium as our contribution to science. For this opportunity, we would like to express out greatest thanks to Prof. Masakazu Anpo, the Editor-in-Chief of Research on Chemical Intermediates. We would also like to thank the publishers for their kind help in realizing this Special Issue. Finally, we would like to thank all of the contributors and reviewers to this Special Issue for their kind support. Thank you very much.
