Recent Paper




 May 2019

A scientific paper regarding analytical chemistry is published in ChemPlusChem. The paper describes the factors governing intermolecular interactions at solid-liquid interfaces: Typically, the interactions at molecular level can be understood and controlled in terms of various interactions including π‒π interactions and hydrogen bondings. Instead, this research clearly reveals another factor, the entropic term in relation to the dynamics of solid phases, for controlling the interactions using various spectroscopic analysis. Such a new understanding of interactions at the solid-liquid interfaces is of particular interest in relation to the development of analytical method and understanding of enzymatic reactions in biology.

The collaborative work with Prof. L. Hammarström (Uppsala Univ.) was published in Angewandte Chemie International Edition. The paper reported a single-molecule-based artificial photosynthetic system for visible-light-driven water oxidation, and the photochemical properties were corroborated by the photophysical analysis using femtoseccond and nanosecond laser transient absorption spectroscopy.
