Nanocarbons are the most promising future materials based on the last three decades of successful experience. The design and synthesis of next-generation molecular nanocarbons are critical in the development of future materials. Our group will utilize the bottom-up synthetic strategy to achieve the controlled synthesis of new topological molecular nanocarbons. Furthermore, our group will pursue interdisciplinary research including DFT calculations for structural prediction, evaluation of optical and electrical properties, and applications in material science.
Current research interests:
1. The design and synthesis of next-generation molecular nanocarbons.
2. The study of optical and electrical properties of molecular nanocarbons
3. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon-oriented synthetic chemistry methodology
