ABOUT US

Our aim is to develop novel dynamic functional metal complexes and responsive supramolecules by taking advantage of dynamic feature of metal ions and finely designed organic frameworks. For details, please visit the RESEARCH pages with animations representing the research concepts and findings. Research activities in our group are supported by the following funds.

Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology Grant-in-Aid
Coordination Asymmetry
Kanazawa University Nano Life Science Institute (WPI-NonoLSI)


Our group welcomes graduate students from all over the world who are interested in researches on supramolecular and coordination chemistry. If you wish to join our group, please contact Prof. Akine.
