NANOCHEMISTRY LAB.

Department of Chemistry, Okayama University

The aim of our research is to explore nanometrology by exploiting the novel functionality of inorganic nanomaterials.

We are currently investigating nanoscale properties of biological samples and electronic devices, through optical responses of nanodiamonds and metallic nanoparticles.

Our multidisciplinary research involves chemistry, physics, and biology. 

Diversity is one of the key values of our department both in terms of science and research life.

NanoChem has started since Apr. 1, 2021.

私たちは機能性ナノ粒子を用いた新しいナノ計測技術を開拓することを目指して研究を行っています。特に、ダイヤモンドナノ粒子や金属ナノ粒子を用いて生物試料やデバイスの局所特性を計測/制御する研究に取り組んでいます。私たちの研究は、化学・物理・生物をまたぐ分野横断型研究であり、私たちは自主性・積極性・多様性を重視した研究活動を行っています。2021年4月に発足しました。

Yajuan's paper has been published in Chemosphere!

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0045653524009536?dgcid=author

Here, we have explored the nanobio interactions between C. elegans body and surface-engineered nanoparticles and found that it is possible to manipulate the nanoparticle accumulation by the surface control. This is a collaboration with Prof. Nishina ( Okayama Univ.), Profs. Komatsu, Kage-Nakadai (Kyoto Univ.), and Prof. Shikano (Tsukuba Univ.).

Congratulations!! Keisuke was awarded a PhD!!
His thesis title is "Quantum biosensing with nitrogen vacancy centers in fluorescent nanodiamonds". His doctor's hat admires his microwave antenna for diamonds with frog tissues (Lab Chip (2022).). He is also awarded to a prize of Dean of Graduate School of Natural Science and Technology! He still stays with us as JSPS Research Fellow. We look forward to our further collaboration!
