Research in the Laboratory for Photofunctional Organic Chemistry focuses on the synthesis and characterization of large π-extended organic compounds (e.g., acenes, porphyrinoids, molecular graphenes/graphites, graphene nanoribbons) for applications in organic electronics.

Our group is currently involved in, among others, collaborative projects of "Organic Solar Cells with Innovative Solution-Processable Materials" (JST CREST), "Tailor-Made Synthesis of Graphene Nanoribbons for Innovative Devices" (JST CREST), and "3D Active-Site Science" (JSPS Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas).
