Industrial chemistry is related to the entire life cycle of "things," from the development of substances and materials to their manufacturing process, waste disposal, and recycling. Basic education, laboratory works, and discussions are emphasized, and the department aims to cultivate well-qualified researchers and chemical engineers through top level research activities.
Research Groups & Research Areas
Inorganic / Analytical Chemistry
We use various elements appearing in the periodic table, and leverage and analyze the varied potential of chemical entities including shared bonds, ion bonds, crystalline and amorphous substances, to obtain desired functions and provide them for the benefit of society. That is what inorganic / analytical chemistry is about.
Kunimura Research Group/ Nagata Research Group / Tanaka Research Group
Organic chemistry is the chemistry of organic compounds and materials containing carbon bonds, including substances that are closely related to living creatures. This interesting area covers a wide range of applications, including fibers, drugs and functional materials and, thanks to the huge number of different organic compounds, allows making new discoveries.
Hashizume Research Group / Imahori Research Group / Sugimoto Research Group
Aiming to gain an even deeper and more comprehensive understanding of basic problems in fields including organic chemistry and inorganic / analytical chemistry, physical chemistry serves as a theoretical basis for all chemical phenomena and many phenomena related to them.
Kawai Research Group / Kondo Research Group
Many products required for everyday life are made through the application of chemical principles. Their production requires ingenuity in many ways when deciding how to use materials and energy, reduce environmental burden and the like. This ingenuity is chemical engineering.
