Overview of Graduate School
Center for Molecular Chemistry
Molecular Chemistry is a unified research field of a wide range of chemical science, including quantum chemistry, organometallic chemistry, material chemistry, surface chemistry, synthetic organic chemistry, natural product chemistry, cluster chemistry,biochemistry, and polymer chemistry.
The core subjects being investigated in the Center are
(1) design and synthesis of novel, versatile and functional inorganic and organic compounds, organometallics and nanomaterials,
(2) physicochemical understanding of chemical reactions, and
(3) clarification of complex biological phenomena. In addition, important Center goals are development of molecular devices essential for progress in electronic technology and development of useful pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals.
Key words: Theoretical chemistry, Natural product chemistry, Synthetic organic chemistry, Polymer chemistry, Material chemistry
