✓Research Interests

The current research interests of our group are in the studies of silicon-based functional materials that are useful for organic devices, such as OLEDs, OFETs, and OPVs. These include, for example, novel matellole deriatives and alternate polymers and oligomers composed of an organosilicon unit and a π-electron system. In addition, we study silicon-containing reactive intermediates, such as silenes and silyl anions.
