Outline

Development of new synthetic methods of macromolecules based on precise arrangement of atoms and molecules and exploration of their functions

Based on the knowledge of organic chemistry and supramolecular chemistry, we aim to create polymers with precisely controlled chain and network structures, by precisely arranging or aligning atoms and molecules. Such new polymers will have completely new electronic, optical, and mechanical materials, that utilize the properties of organic elements to the utmost limit.

Research Themes

・Macromolecular synthesis linking the components of crystals
・Synthesis of sequence-controlled polymers using oligomeric blocks
