Research Contents

When it comes to various biological functions, organic molecules, inorganic molecules, organic polymers and inorganic crystals are adeptly brought together to each play their own role in the creation of superior catalytic activity, information processing, mechanical and electronic properties, and the like. At our laboratory, we look at these systems at a molecular level, with the aim of developing superior materials.
