Our research goal is to develop functional nanomaterials for energy- and healthcare-applications. One of the biggest advantages of nanomaterials is that the property can easily be tuned by modifying their structure and composition. In order to design materials such that they have specific properties, it is critical to understand how the smallest unit which composes materials – molecules – change the property.
In other words, our research goal is
(1) to understand the material from chemical perspectives,
(2) to properly design the material for specific purposes, and
(3) to convert raw matter into functional materials.
