Graduate School/Areas


This area focuses on the design of novel functional and high-performance materials through basic and applied chemistry with the aid of advanced characterization facilities. We contribute to society by proposing innovative chemical products and fabrication processes to industries, which are needed for the enriched sustainable society.
Moreover, we aim to foster future researchers and technical experts who have the ability to develop new materials on the basis of design at the atomic and molecular levels with advanced knowledge of chemistry to explore frontiers of materials chemistry.

Education policy:

We aim for students to acquire not only the skill of advanced characterization on composition and structure of materials but also the ability to design basic structure of materials with new functions. On the basis of high level knowledge, students are expected to engage in creative academic research activities to explore frontiers of materials chemistry. In addition, we aim to nurture students to understand the technology and materials which are required in industries and contribute to society by the technology development and creation of new materials from the perspective of chemistry.
