✔ 20th Nov 2020 The paper by Ryota Tuji, Kota Fukasawa, and Shuhei Yamashita got accepted for the publication in Polymer Journal (Springer Nature). Congrats, Ryota, Kota, and Shuhei :) This work employed the Passerini three component reactions for the utilization of bio-sourced compunds, which should make a contribution to the sustanable polymer synthesis. More information will be coming soon !

✔ 16th Nov 2020 The paper by Ryo Takahashi got accepted for the publication in Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics (Wiley). Congrats, Ryo :) This work, for the first time, employed and optimized the Petasis three component reactions, which enabled a syntheis of polyamino acids as a zwitterionic form. More information will be coming soon !

✔ Nov 2020 Li-Chieh joined the team as a Ph.D candidate. Let's enjoy a new scientific journey with the team :)

✔ 10th Nov 2020 The paper by Kota Fukasawa is now published online. This work aimed to rationally and experimentally design a new post-polymerization modification, which was feasibly predicted by the power of computational chemistry.

✔ 1st Nov 2020 The paper by Kota Fukasawa got accepted as a Supplementary Cover in Macromolecules (ACS). Many congrats, Kota :)

✔ 28th Oct 2020 The paper by Kota Fukasawa got accepted for the publication in Macromolecules (ACS). Congrats, Kota :) This is an international collaboration works among Gunma Uni., Yamagata Uni, and Carnegie Mellon Uni.. More information will be coming soon !
