With the aim of contributing to next-generation energy-related technologies, we are designing and synthesizing various "molecules" from the viewpoint of organic materials chemistry to develop "energy conversion materials" that exhibit outstanding performance and new functions.

Research Area Organic chemistry, Organometallics, Coordination chemistry
Research Interests ・"Crystal Materials" that respond to stimuli
・"Luminescent Materials" that respond to stimuli
・"Molecular Catalysts" that make good use of hydrogen
