Research Outline

My proposal is a charge-separated spatial material which has separated charges on surfaces. Charge-separated spatial materials are expected to have specific interaction between that surface and organic material/gas. For instance, there is a possibility that they could be promising materials for hydrogen or natural gas and that could solve the issue of next generation energy. I will develop their synthetic methodology and elucidate their functional expression and organize the whole of them.
