Recent Research Topic from Analytical Chemistry Laboratory: Plasmon chemistry

Posted on : June 27, 2019 [NEW]

Is F1-ATPase a rotary motor with nearly 100% efficiency?

Posted on : June 22, 2019 | Modified on : June 25, 2019 [NEW]

  Many active processes in cells are based on the function of molecular motors, which convert chemical (free) energy into work. These molecular motors provide realizations of nanometer-scaled thermodynamic machines and can thereby act as test cases for the recently developed stochastic thermodynamics ...

Hydrophobic effect and hydrophobic interaction

Posted on : May 27, 2019 | Modified on : May 28, 2019

  It is remarked that the solvation thermodynamics characteristic of hydrophobic hydration is actually not so uncommon when the constant-volume solvation process is considered while it is indeed atypical in the constant-pressure process, and what makes water special as a solvent of hydrophobic ...

Recent Research Topic from Physical Chemistry Laboratory: How should we assess the capacity of antioxidants?

Please refer to the Japanese page.

Challenge on theoretical assessment of a hypothesis on protein folding stability that has been widely believed for 60 years ~The protein intramolecular interactions are suggested as the driving force of protein folding~

Posted on : March 28, 2019 | Modified on : April 1, 2019

Theoretical physical chemistry group from Research Institute for Interdisciplinary Science, Okayama University (Dr. T. Sumi and Prof. K. Koga) developed a computational method to extract the dominant factor of protein folding stability and applied it to a design protein chignolin. On the basis ...

Recent Research Topic from Coordination Chemistry Laboratory: Iron(II) complex showing scan rate dependent spin-crossover behavior

Posted on : January 28, 2019 | Modified on : February 6, 2019

Unpaired electrons do not stably exist on typical elements except for special cases, but unpaired electrons can stably exist on transition metal ions. Among them, in the hexacoordinate octahedral metal complexes of manganese, iron and cobalt, there are two states, a high-spin state where the number ...

Recent Research Topic from Synthetic and Physical Organic Chemistry: Development of fluorescent dye which changes emission color like chameleon

Posted on : January 19, 2019 | Modified on : January 28, 2019

See the Japanese article.

Recent Research Topic from Structural Chemistry Laboratory: Study of molecular dynamics intercalated in two-dimensional sheets

Recent Research Topic from Functional Organic Chemistry Laboratory: Development of Organic Thin-Film Solar Cell Materials

Posted on : October 2, 2018 | Modified on : December 12, 2018

Currently, as a clean renewable energy that replaces fossil fuels, silicon solar cells (inorganic solar cells) are installed and introduced in various places, like solar panels installed in roofs of houses. However, silicon solar cells have problems such as high fabrication cost, limited installation ...

Recent Research Topic from Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory: Novel Chemical Reaction with Nanospace

Posted on : September 10, 2018 | Modified on : December 12, 2018

化学では分子やイオンを基本単位として考えると理解できる現象が数多く存在します。分子やイオンのサイズは通常、100万分の1 mm程度のオーダー、つまり1 nm(ナノメートル)程度です。「ナノサイエンス」という言葉が有名ですが、「ナノ」とは分子やイオン程度の極めて微小なサイズのことを指しています。このサイズ領域は決して人間の目でとらえることはできません。そのため、我々は ...
