Chemically activated species play a crucial role in molecular transformations and in our understanding of molecular functions. However, many of these are highly unstable, and have very short lifetimes in biological molecules and in chemical reaction systems. In this research project, nanospaces are employed for the stabilization of activated species that do not exist under normal conditions, and interactions between the guest molecules accommodated within these voids are used to create previously unknown chemical species. We aim to expand the frontiers of adsorption chemistry based on the processes surrounding their generation, and use these species to explore new materials science.
