Elucidation of self-assembly process

Using QASAP, which is a quantitative analysis method for the self-assembly process developed by us, we are investigating the molecular self-assembly processes, and developing new substances by controlling the self-assembly pathways.

Dissipative Self-Assembly

Through the development of dynamic self-assembly systems (dissipative self-assembly system) that are maintained by external energy to create a metastable self-assembly state and its conversion into disassembled state, we are developing self-assembly systems that are close to life systems and molecular machines.
