Research Themes

The research and development of organic chemistry-based materials

Understanding the organic matter that constitutes living things starts with an understanding of organic chemistry. Our research group researches the development of new materials, the development of high-strength, high-elasticity resin, the development of functional materials, the development of biomaterials, etc. based on this organic chemistry. We pursue pure chemistry scholarship and conduct research to expand Japanese industry and make our lives more rich and full.

Teaching Philosophy

Connecting knowledge allows scientists to see a world that only they can see. We work from an organic chemistry perspective to design and assemble molecules to synthesize macromolecules. We then observe how these macromolecules behave, and are the only ones in the world to be looking at these unique molecules. I educate students to be able to carry out this work, and am in search of students with these dreams.
