In the context of sustainable development to improve the quality of life, applied chemistry plays a crucial role in advancing science and technology in diverse fields such as energy, the environment, and biotechnology. Our department consists of six laboratories and our research embraces a wide range of scientific and engineering issues, from basic discovery to advanced applications. Research areas can be categorized into three sections: 1. Design of functional polymers and/or semiconductors at atomic, molecular, mesoscopic, and macroscopic levels 2. Development of advanced chemical reaction processes based on “green sustainable chemistry” 3. Synthesis of novel organic materials and their application to bioscience products and fine chemicals
