Short description of the company / technology

Organic and applied organic, organometallic colored polymer and nanomaterials chemistry

Principal subjects of interest are:

·   Organic synthesis towards molecular electronics devices: the development of new synthetic methodology based on organometallic monomers and polymers incorporating azo dye moieties has been the focus of our research interest.

·   Nanoscience research: the research centers on nanomaterials, of a particular interest, dye-doped silica nanoparticles. Bioconjugation of this silica adds unique biofunctions with various molecules such as peptides, antibodies and DNA molecules.
