Research Overview

Our research projects aim at synthesis of desgined novel organic molecules that exhibit unique chemical properties for production of innovative functional material. We have been engaging the following three research lines.

1. Synthesis of novel π-conjugated organic molecules that exhibit unique electronic and photophysical properties.

2. Studies on structural control and functionality of two-dimensional molecular self-assemblies at the liquid/solid interfaces.

3. Covalent chemical functionalization of graphite and graphene.

Though goals of above research lines are different, our basic concept is to use designed novel molecular building blocks. Therefore, at the beginning of all projects, we desgine new molecules based on prediction by quantum chemical calculations. Then, we synthesize new organic molecules using various synthetic methods. Finally, we evaluate properties of new molecules by means of different analytical techniques. You can find further details in our recent publications.
