We are investigating on the following topics using transition and lanthanide metal complexes:

  1. Nitrido complexes and nitrogen-atom transfer

  2. Multidentate Schiff base complexes

  3. Spin-crossover complexes

  4. Total and Absolute spontaneous resolution

  5. Molecular design of polynuclear metal complexes

  6. Polydentate phosphine and phosphine-imine complexes

  7. Metal complexes with nucleobases

  8. Metal oxide cluster with organometallic fragments

In this research group, we are investigating on the syntheses, molecular and crystal structures, physical properties, and chemical reactivities of novel transition and lanthanide metal complexes
