An introduction to faculty staff members and laboratories in the Engineering and Chemistry.
Note: Information on the laboratories is current as of the 2023 academic year. There may be changes to this information in the 2024 academic year.
- Surface Design Chemistry Laboratory
Physical Chemistry, Catalytic Chemistry
Catalysts are what control chemical reactions. This laboratory develops intelligent catalysts to enable more effective resource utilization and allow full use of natural energy sources and waste materials. In addition, we also conduct research on earth-friendly chemical reactions such as energy conversion and environmental cleanup.
- Associate Professor
- Organic and Macromolecular Synthetic Chemistry Laboratory
Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Polymer Chemistry, Organic Electrochemistry
We synthesize organic macromolecules that offer various functions such as temperature-based changes in physical properties and applications to optical storage. We are working to develop environmentally friendly catalysts and functional electrodes by modifying the surface of platinum and carbon fibers with these molecules.
- Functional Materials Laboratory
Catalysis, X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy
