Research Group of Takano and Noro


A molecule or macromolecule with repulsive interactions among the chemical components within the single molecule, such as a surfactant or a block copolymer, represent self-assembled nanophase-separated structures (or microphase-separated structures) at the nanometer length scale. In Takano and Noro Research Group, we study precious synthesis of block copolymers and various cyclic polymers, and observe/measure novel phase-separated structures and interesting physical properties of the polymers. We also study methods for controlling physical properties and functions of new proton conductive polymer electrolyte membranes and non-covalent bonded rubber/elastomer materials at the molecular level, and their potentials as future engineering materials.
