We are creating functional materials that are synthesized via precise polymerization techniques

In our laboratory, Synthesis of various specially-structured polymers; molecular design of functional polymers such as stimuli-responsive polymers and conductive polymers; the study of micro-phase separation using block copolymers; creation and application of environmental zero-waste macromolecular materials with multi-functions.

Prof. Isono has published an article on Macromolecules (ACS). We successfully synthesized a series of novel bio-based block copolymers consisting of maltooligosaccharides and poly(δ-decanolactone). These block copolymers are sustainable alternatives to a thermoplastic elastomer.
