Material Chemistry

In the field of materials science, we develop novel materials based on chemical engineering to support the innovation of next-generation social infrastructure. Research in materials science covers a wide range of materials from organic compounds to inorganic compounds. We design and synthesize new compounds from atoms and/or molecules and reveal their electric, magnetic, optical, and catalytic properties. The compounds designed at the atomic and molecular level provide a new “phase” and “surface/interface” and exhibit novel properties which have not been realized by conventional materials. In materials science, research is conducted on the basis of “manufacturing”. Research outcomes draw attention from many industrial companies from the viewpoint of material development. The achievements from this research field contribute not only to the field of materials science, but also to the creation of new technologies.
