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

Posted on : September 10, 2018 | Modified on : September 12, 2018 [NEW]

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

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 ...

“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 : July 26, 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 : May 29, 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 ...

The research team of Okayama University has elucidated the molecular mechanism of the initial stage of ice melting !

Posted on : July 18, 2013

The research team of Okayama University has revealed the molecular mechanism of melting ice from the inside by computer simulation. The mechanism by which solid matter melts is a challenging, basic scientific research theme that also provides important suggestions for understanding mechanisms of phase ...

Prof. Kobozono's paper is published in Nature

Posted on : March 9, 2010 | Modified on : March 10, 2010

The phenomenon of superconductivity continues to intrigue, and several new superconducting materials have been discovered in recent years — but in the case of organic superconductors, no new material system with a high superconducting transition temperature has been identified in the past decade ...
