Nanomaterials and Polymer Chemistry Laboratory

Message


Based on the concept of “molecular technology”, this laboratory started in 2015 to research functional materials and nanomaterials in the field of polymer chemistry. Nanomaterials and Polymer Chemistry laboratory belongs to both Departments of “Center for Frontier Science and Technology” and “Graduate School of Materials Science” in NAIST. Creation and developments of functional polymers are our interest. We also focus on collaboration with companies and education of graduate students.
(Assoc. Prof. Hiroharu Ajiro)


Education and Research Activities in the Laboratory

Students who are interested in polymer synthesis and nanomaterials are welcome. The development of functional polymer materials requires organic synthesis, analytical methods, and material design, all of which are covered in the laboratory. We offer a through education toward becoming a researcher through discussions, presentations, and participation in academic conferences and meetings.


Research Themes

We aim to create functional polymer materials through the application of “molecular technology”. In this laboratory, high-performance polymers and functional polymers are prepared by various approaches such as molecular design, polymer structure control, and effective polymer-polymer interaction.


1. Biocompatible polymer / Bioabsrobable polymer

Trimethylene carbonate derivatives and N-vinylamide derivatives, for example, are selected as biomaterial application (Fig. 1).

2. Stimuli-responsive polymer

Thermal, pH, and light are used for the stimuli-responsive polymer materials, which change their chemical and physical properties (Fig. 2).

3. Nanostructure control

Nanoparticles, nanofibers, and nanofilms are design and prepared, using polymer-polymer interactions, such as van der Waals interaction and electrostatic interaction (Fig. 3).
