Advanced Nanomaterials Chemistry



Our fuel cell electrocatalyst
composed of Pt/polymer-wrapped carbon nanotubes

The key material of our research is next-generation nanomaterials featured in the structure dimensionality, which is represented by carbon nanotubes. Our research targets expand from fundamental chemistries to application development. In particular, nanostructural analyses of the materials are carried out by using state-of-the-art instruments and novel analytical methods. Our findings through the approaches are leading to novel nanomaterial fabrication including energy materials, biomaterials, and advanced functional materials.
