Welcome to Watanabe & Dokko Group!!
The main research area of our group is concerned with the interdisciplinary region between polymer chemistry and electrochemistry. General objectives of the research projects are design, preparation, and characterization of functional polymers, which intelligently respond to and discriminate among external stimuli, then followed by giving appropriate “answers”.
Functional polymers frequently do not work by itself, but exhibit their performance in a particular system based on a highly organized molecular response. The design of molecular system is also an important target of our research projects. We focus our attention to the systems where the responses (“answers”) of functional polymers and their systems can be electrically (electrochemically) detected.
