Outline of R&D Project

Over the period of CREST program, we have developed a series of metal coordination networks with controlled nano-sized pores and introduced and demonstrated a novel concept of X-ray structural analysis, named the “crystalline sponge method”.
This methodology enables X-ray structural analysis of small molecules without preparing its single crystal, instead, by simply absorbing molecules of interest into a porous crystalline material.
We plan to boost up the “crystalline sponge method” to the practical stage and make it widely accessible through ACCEL.
