Research Subject
Development of New Functional Molecular Materials Exhibiting Dynamic Switching on Electronic Properties

研究の背景 Background


The development of molecular-based functional materials is attracting much attention not only for fundamental interests but also for an application for new electric devices. Although Materials based on inorganic oxides has been came to practical use, molecular-based materials can be expected to exhibit characteristic properties, which come from ‘molecule’. It is important to develop new molecular –based function qualitatively in studies of molecular materials.

研究の目標 Outcome


The molecular design and crystal design are both important to observe target properties in molecular materials. The electronic state of molecules can be controlled by molecular design. Additionally, crystal structure design is achieved by using chirality as a structural factor. The main target is development of stimuli-responsive multifunctional, which physical properties can be switched dynamically
