Organic Functional Molcular Chemistry



Doubly N-Confused Hexaphyrin that can sense Zn2+ ions in water.

Aimes of our research is to develop the next generation of functional molecules using artificial mloecular evolutions of attractive biomolecules such as porphyrins and RNAs. Through evolutinonal approaches, we can synthesize a variety of functional molecules and further develop conceptually novel methodologies toward unprecedent materials. Our research will contribute to an achivement of sustainable world by solving the enviromental and energy issues.
