Research Keyword Multifunctional polymeric materials
Research Area Polymer chemistry (Self-assembled and Multifunctional Polymer Materials)
Research Institute Theme (1) A large scale and convenient synthesis of a variety of dendrimers will be investigated based on novel dendrimer synthestic method of "alternate multi-addition (AMA)". The dendrimers obtained are utilized as spherical cores to establish multifunctinal polymers such as self-organization and/or photopolymer materials. (2) Novel diacetylene organogelators with simple chemical structures are synthesized to investigate gelation and/or photopolymerization mechanism. Precious control of the photopolymezized polymer structures will be discussed to create novel pi-conjugated systems.
