My Areas of Research

The synthesis of star pi-conjugated system molecules and the realization of environmental responsiveness

My research is aimed at the fabrication of star pi-conjugated system molecules composed of donor aryl groups (D)-thiophene (π)-nitrogen-containing heterocyclic cores (A) and the realization of environmental responsiveness that makes use of the intramolecular charge transfer property of these D-π-A molecules. These environmentally-responsive molecules can be visually detected as solvent polarity changes, proton concentration changes, and changes in solution color/emission color in response to metal ions, and applications as new atomic sensor are anticipated.

My Teaching Philosophy

I guide research with the aim of students acquiring fundamental knowledge and fundamental experimental techniques related to organic chemistry, as well as improving presentation abilities. I would also like students to acquire a sense of accomplishment and happiness in producing new organic molecules that have never existed before through organic synthesis research.
