This research group deals with the development of novel functional materials based on organosilicon chemistry.  Polysilane derivatives, and polymers and oligomers with an alternate arrangement of organosilicon units and π-conjugated systems are synthesized and their functionalities are studied.  The development of new synthetic reactions utilizing finely designed transition metal catalysts and reactive intermediates, and their applications to the creation of new functional molecules are also emphasized.
