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

Based on the concept of “molecular technology”, this laboratory was established in 2015 to conduct research on functional materials and nanomaterials in the field of polymer chemistry. Students who are interested in polymer synthesis and nanomaterials are welcome. The development of functional polymer materials requires knowledge of organic synthesis, analytical methods, and materials design, all of which are covered in the laboratory. We offer a thorough education to prepare students to become researchers 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. General Synthetic Polymers

In order to give additional functions and higher physical properties, the general synthetic polymers are modified. For example, the oil gel using polystyrene and functional polyurethane by monomer design (Fig.1).

2. Biodegradable Polymer

Multi-functional biodegradable polymers are designed. For example, the medical materials for circular organs, long -term release, and antithrombotic surface materials by poly(trimethylene carbonate) derivatives (Fig.2).

3. Amphiphilic Polymer

Functional materials by amphiphilic polymers are designed. For example, N-vinylamide derivatives for gas hydrate inhibitors and antibacterial materials (Fig.3).

4.Nano Structure Control

In order to produce functional polymer materials, nanostructure control approach are employed. For example, nano thin films for th ermal storage materials and adhesives and nano particles for drug delivery system (Fig.4).
