Promotion of world leading researches on the Elements Science "Creation of functional materials based on the specified character of elements" through a strong cooperation between Elements Science, Molecular Science, and Materials Science, aiming at the construction of a true center of excellence (COE) in the field of Elements Science




The concept of "Elements Science" is imaged by two step transformation from elements (atoms) at both sides to molecules, and to functional molecular frameworks at the center. The whole view is an image of crystal packing and surface structure and at the same time an image of world-wide expansion of our concept and research activity.
