Design of the nanospace of metal organic framework for molecular recognition and separation

The nanospace of metal organic frameworks can be structurally and functionally tuned by their building blocks. In our laboratory, we focus on creation of nanospace which can recognize specific molecules leading efficient gas separation functions.

Study on molecular and framework dynamics toward energy conversion materials

One of the most interesting properties of MOFs compared to the other porous materials is framework flexibility. It is known that adsorbed molecules and ligands composed of framework highly dynamic in the nanospace. We are focusing on flexible MOFs which can convert adsorption / desorption or chemical reaction energy to available energy.

Development of inorganic-MOF hybrid membrane

We are working on the hybridization of macroporous inorganic material and microporous materials with high density which make possible to effective molecular separation in non-equilibrium system.

Elucidation of molecular events in the nanospace of MOFs

Molecular events in the nanospace are totally different from those in our meter sized world. To elucidate such events, we have developed our original measurement systems. In addition, we also utilize state-of-the art technologies such as X-ray free electron laser combined with gas adsorption equipment.

Lab information

Our structure-functional chemistry group started from Nov. 2015. We are focusing on the new functional nanomaterials based on inorganic-coordination chemistry. From fabrication of materials by self-assembly for various elements and molecules, we are exploring to the nano-space science.
