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 ...

Revisions to standard theory provide clues to understanding phase behavior of clathrate hydrates

Posted on : August 22, 2018 | Modified on : December 12, 2018

A research by Prof. Hideki Tanaka, Assoc. Prof. Masakazu Matsumoto and Assist. Prof. Takuma Yagasaki developed the new theory that estimates the conditions where various gas hydrates can exist, and elucidated the phase diagram of gas hydrates for the first time. The research article was featured ...

Recent Research Topic from Organic Chemistry Laboratory: Development of Environmentally Friendly Antifouling Molecules

Posted on : July 20, 2018 | Modified on : December 12, 2018

“Late-Stage Divergent Synthesis and Antifouling Activity of Geraniol–Butenolide Hybrid Molecules” Takamura, H.; Ohashi, T.; Kikuchi, T.; Endo, N.; Fukuda, Y.; Kadota, I. Org. Biomol. Chem. 2017, 15, 5549–5555.

Recent Study from the Theoretical Chemistry Laboratory: Exploration of the new ices

Posted on : July 5, 2018 | Modified on : December 12, 2018

Can we make ice other than hexagon? Experiments have shown that ice crystals change to unusual crystal structures such as triangles and squares when the pressure is high. It is not high enough pressure even at the deepest part of the ocean, but it is thought that the strongly compressed ice near the ...

Recent Study from Analytical Chemistry Laboratory: Enhanced Optical Collection of Micro-and Nanovesicles in the Presence of Gold Nanoparticles

Posted on : May 28, 2018 | Modified on : December 12, 2018

It has long been known that cells constituting the body release vesicles, but it was thought to be a cell waste. In recent years, however, it has become clear that vesicles of several tens to several hundreds of nanometers released by cells play a role in function control and information transmission ...
