Research in Chemistry--Organic
The Organic Division works on novel materials and photochemistry. The novel materials include stimuli-responsive polymers, unnatural amino acids, new organometallic catalysts, and photosensitive adhesives. The photochemistry of liquid crystalline polymers is also studied. The mechanisms of photochemical reactions are investigated. Short-lived organic species can be characterized by nanosecond transient spectroscopy.
