    Area of Composite Materials Design

    Professor NAKATANI Ryoichi(Adjunct)   Associate Professor ITO Mikio
    Our laboratory offers research and education for the development and application of new synthesis process for many functional materials, such as thermoelectric materials, hydrogen storage materials, hard and soft magnets, superconductors, etc., with high performance and/or with novel functions. The establishment of such a processing technology is tried mainly through powder metallurgy technique; micro-structural control and hybridization of powder materials, and novel directly applied current sintering, etc.

    Area of Functional Molecular Materials Design

    Professor KAMBE Nobuaki(Adjunct)   Assistant Professor KONISHI Akihito
    Our research is focused on the development of new synthetic methods and strategies using transition metal catalyst and novel organometallics. For example, we developed a new class catalyst bearing anionic charge on the metal complexes, which are applicable to an effective catalyst for cross-coupling reaction. We also targets the novel Lewis acid catalyst. Metal complexes having cage-shaped ligands are synthesized and used for new types of selective reactions for organic synthesis. These reactive transition metal and organometallics species have been highly demanded for developing new functionalized materials and pharmaceutical compounds. All projects are supported by organic synthetic approaches that expands to various filed of chemistry.

    Area of Molecular Assembly Design

    Professor HAYASHI Takashi(Adjunct)   Associate Professor TOBISU Mamoru
    Our group focuses on structures, reactivities and physicochemical properties of various organic compounds such as proteins, organometallic complexes, π-conjugated materials and bioactive substances and then tries to optimize the synthetic routes and evaluate these functions. Particularly, we design and prepare a new biohybrid catalyst or an organometallic catalyst which can promote difficult conversions of organic molecules via activation of an inert chemical bond.
