An exhibition commemorating Japanese-born chemist Jokichi Takamine (1854-1922), whose most notable achievement was the isolation of adrenaline, will take place Dec. 1-17 in Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture.

Takamine’s grandson, Jokichi Takamine III, 77, will fly in from his home in Los Angeles for the exhibition at a city cultural center. He said about 30 items including diaries, microscopes and his death mask will be put on display.
