Introduction of Research
Breakthrough Materials Created by Manipulation of Molecular Information is a "mixture" always bothering us? Mixture is a combination of two or more different compounds, and sometimes expresses a negative meaning due to the impurity from viewpoints of classical organic chemistry. Until now, many chemists have devoted themselves to how to purify a compound from a mixture, or synthesize and analyze a pure compound.Contrary to this trend, we aspire for a breakthrough on functions, structures, and reactions, which are achieved by elaborately mixed various components. The ultimate purpose of our research is to understand new phenomena and develop novel functional materials by mixing compounds!!
In this context, we have endeavored to control association and dissociation among compounds in order to construct hierarchal architectures in a wide range of scale from nano to millimeter by mixing multiple components, in which an ordered communication of components and/or energies spontaneously occurs.
