Inorganic Chemistry

Inorganic chemistry is the chemistry field paired with organic chemistry. Many elements listed in the periodic table are involved in composing research target materials. Inorganic chemistry includes various kinds of fragmented research fields such as solid state chemistry, coordination chemistry, organometallic chemistry, surface chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, catalytic chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, polymer chemistry, and radiochemistry. In inorganic chemistry research groups, we treat these research fields in an interdisciplinary manner and try to create new functional molecules, solids, and materials through the preparations and property evaluations of self-assembled structures based on metal complexes, the creation of oxide, cyanide and halogenated materials having superior electric or magnetic property, and the development of catalytic reactions using metal clusters and the clarification of their reaction mechanisms.
