 We are conducting research on new functional polymer materials (Greenhouse gas separation, polymer solid electrolyte for fuel cell, all solid-state lithium ion battery, etc.) and functional nanofibers (Nanodevices, ion conductive nanofibers, electronic conductive nanofibers, catalytic functional nanofibers, biofunctional nanofibers, etc.) that respond to or solve environmental and energy problems while paying attention to the global environment. Furthermore we are conducting research on biomimetic materials (Artificial enzymes, artificial organs, etc.) that artificially mimic of biological functions and nanomedicine (Regenerative medicine, drug delivery system, epigenetics engineering, molecular motor, etc.) that combines medical devices and nanotechnology, and are developing biomaterials and medical devices that will support future life sciences. In addition, we are teaching for students to acquire the ability that cope with global society and the expertise that can contribute to the environment, energy, medical care and welfare those of humanity though research and education.

  The development of novel higher-order structure by using the knowledge of inter-disciplinary area between magneto-science and physical chemistry of polymer is my research field, which results in improving function and bringing out hidden properties of commonly used materials. First of all, I succeeded in control of higher-order structure of commonly used crystalline polymers, which was impossible by using a magnetic field conventionally. Now, my research interest shifts to control of higher-order structure of polymer / filler composite materials, block copolymers, gel and so on. Correlation of higher-order structure and function of materials will be clarified and seeds for new materials development leading to solution to issue of environment and energy will be offered. In addition, I am supporting Japan’s materials industries by development of original materials and process methods.

Currently, I mainly engage in supporting the synthesis of key compounds for implementation on supramolecular catalysts and nanobiomaterials. From now on, I will contribute to boost these research subjects by making the best use of rich knowledge and experience on synthetic organic chemistry and molecular recognition/host-guest chemistry.
In the future, I would like to establish and improve of the basic technologies and also to challenge the development of novel materials that lead to innovation in environmental, energy, and life sciences.

  Polymer materials can be used in various applications, from common plastics to high-performance devices, by designing molecules and controlling their morphology. The aim of my research is to develop novel functional polymer materials for environment- and energy-related applications. Based on polymer synthesis techniques and unique research approaches, we are now studying 1) polymeric gas separation membranes, 2) polymer electrolyte membranes for fuel cells or secondary batteries, and 3) functional polymer nanofibers. These functional polymer materials will contribute to building future clean and sustainable society through the new technologies, such as carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) technology and hydrogen energy system using renewable energy sources and fuel cells.
