A number of environmental and energy-related issues, such as global warming and related climate change, are currently facing us. In our laboratory, we are developing new materials that can contribute to society through materials chemistry from the perspective of "ubiquitous". The word "ubiquitous"means " existing everywhere and all the time". Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and light from the sky are ubiquitous. These have great potential as carbon and energy sources. With "nano" as the keyword, we aim to develop nanomaterials whose size and structure are designed from the molecular level to the nanoscale, and to explore the new field of carbon-neutral chemistry for the effective utilization of this ubiquitous material and energy.
