Research Themes

The preparation of functional polymers to support the development of high-technology industry

New polymeric materials with a variety of functions are expected to become high performance and functional materials that support high-tech industries such as aerospace and information communication. To meet these needs, we synthesize functional monomers (the raw materials of polymers) with a variety of functional groups, and develop highly selective, highly efficient and confidential polymerization methods. Recently, we have been fabricating functional polymeric materials such as highly thermostable polymers, highly transparent polymers, high refractive index polymers, organic/inorganic composites, and gas separation membranes.

Teaching Philosophy

I will educate specialized researchers who tackle academic and industrial issues in the field of polymer chemistry and logically establish methods to resolve these issues based on an understanding of the fundamental principles of polymer chemistry.
