Name SHIOTSUKI Masashi
Official Title Associate Professor
Affiliation Department of Applied Chemistry, Faculty of Science and Technology, Tokyo City University
Profile He received his D. Eng. Degree in 2003 from the Graduate School of Engineering at Kyoto University under the supervision of Professor Take-aki Mitsudo. His research interests include Organic and Polymeric Functional Materials based on Organic Synthesis and the related chemistry such as Membrane Chemistry. Conjugated Polymers, and Transition-metal Catalysis.
Research Field(Keyword & Summary)
  1. Functional Organic/Polymeric Materials

    Research target is to create novel functional organic/polymeric materials by designing molecules with the viewpoints of molecular dynamics. Application of the developed materials can be gas separation membranes, aggregation induced emission materials, and living polymerization initiator/system.
