Creation of Functional Organosilica Hybrid Materials with Highly Ordered Nanostructure

Research Project Outline

The object of this research is the creation of new function of organosilica hybrid materials through the control of the molecular arrangement structure and nano-porous structure. The drawbacks of organic materials, the low stability and the difficulty of nano-structure control, will be overcome by hybridization with inorganic materials in molecular level. We have already succeeded in the synthesis of highly ordered and stable mesoporous organosilica materials and aim to apply them to the photo-conversion system and high efficient molecular recognition system.
