Takashi Nakanishi’s research selected for the inside front cover of the journal "Bulletin of the Chemical Society of Japan"

Group Leader Takashi Nakanishi and his co‐worker's research "Alkyl-Fullerene Materials of Tunable Morphology and Function" was selected as the inside front cover of the journal "Bulletin of the Chemical Society of Japan".

Group Leader Takashi Nakanishi and his co-worker have succeeded in creating various self-assembled nanostructures by taking advantage of the hydrophobic amphiphilic (van der Waals vs. π-π interactions) structure of alkyl chains bearing Fullerene-C60. As functional materials produced from the created structures, we have discovered superhydrophobic surfaces, photovoltaic liquid crystals, and room-temperature fullerene liquids. The proposed “alkyl-π engineering” methodology is applicable to various π-conjugated dye molecules, too. For example, alkylated porphyrins can form a room-temperature liquid state and are utilized as a liquid electret to be fabricated into a freely-deformable, stretchable vibration power generator.
