Research Fields

We design new -conjugated compounds with novel structures and properties by accumulating aromatic units such as benzene or anthracene in intelligent ways. We also create new stereoisomers and stereochemical phenomena generated by steric hindrance as well as anthracene-based materials such as fluorescence dyes and photochemically functional materials. The structures, stereochemistry, dynamic behavior, and properties of these compounds are studied by experimental and theoretical methods.

Message from the Laboratory

In the field of organic chemistry, one can design an infinite number of chemical structures by arranging the type and order of building units. It is real fun of materials science to design new molecules having unique structures and properties and to synthesize and investigate such molecules. Why don't you enjoy and master the chemistry through daily research activities with us toward being a creative researcher?
