Materials Technology
Development of new materials is a core technology that has walked together with human history and technology movement. Studies on modern technology of new materials is focusing on the extraction of synergistic properties through a fusion of individual materials, which requires a profound understanding on the chemistry as a fundamental of the material and the chemical engineering as a toolkit for the realization. Our research group is fully constructing systematic resources for materials design, synthesis, characterization and manipulation, particularly based on the specialized organic and polymeric materials, from which we are directing the development of versatile materials for biomedical, electronic and industrial applications. Furthermore, under the academic banner of °?sustainable growth°Ø for the next generation, we are currently emphasizing studies on environmentally benign and low-energy consuming materials and processing.

Stimuli-Responsive polymers and Gels as Unique Smart Biomaterials
A series of biodegradable stimuli-responsive polymers and the hydrogels based on amphiphilic polyaspartamides, showing both temperature & pH-responsive behavior and sol-gel transition are prepared and characterized. The applications of these polymer materials in delivery of bioactive molecules (anticancer drug or gene) and also as hydrogel scaffold for tissue engineering are under investigation. Also the covalent conjugations of bioactive molecules into biocompatible polymer backbone are investigated to develop polymeric reagents with specific biological functions in cosmetics and pharmaceutical applications.

Novel Adhesive Polymer and Gel From Mussel Biomimic
years, mussel adhesive proteins (MAPs) excreted by marine mussels have attracted much attention for their ability to form strong adhesive bonds to metals, inorganic materials (e.g., glass, TiO2), organic materials (e.g., fish skins), and synthetic materials (e.g., plastic and fibre). Catechol functional group of dopamine was found to be critical functional group required to perform the properties of MAPs. Inspired by the marine mussel adhesive protein, we have synthesized novel adhesive polyaspartamides containig catechol pendants along with other functioanl group. These novel biocompatible polymers and gels have potential to be used in many technological fields including bioadhesives, surface modifications of biomaterials, coating, DDS, etc
