Researching nano-scale molecular quantum magnets typified by single-molecule magnets. In addition, research on a variety of functional metal complexes expected to serve as semiconductor materials for switching elements and solar cells.

Temperature dependence of magnetic susceptibility (,MT) of three iron(II) complexes with different qnal ligands. The L2 complex shows SCO at around 220 K while the others don’t.

Research Area Coordination Chemistry
Research Interests Research on the relation between molecular structures and cooperative effects on the spin crossove (SCO)r phenomena of ironSCO complexes

Synthesis of nobel metal clusters constructed from S-shaped hexadentate ligands.
