Course description and aims

This lecture provides graduate students with opportunities to learn cutting-edge research topics on innovative molecular chemistry, which pursues the precise synthesis, reactions, and functions of organic molecules and macromolecules. It also aims to provide an overarching perspective and knowledge of the field.

Student learning outcomes

1) Understand and explain the fundamentals of synthesis, reactions, and functions of organic molecules and polymers.
2) Understand and explain state-of-the-art research topics in innovative molecular chemistry based on basic knowledge.


organic synthetic chemistry, organometallic chemistry, organic heteroelement chemistry, biological synthesis chemistry, organosilicon materials, mechano-responsive polymers, precision polymerization, template polymerization

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

All the lectures are conducted in a face-to-face lecture style. Small assignments should be worked during each lecture.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.



Reference books, course materials, etc.

Materials are provided during class (or uploaded on T2SCHOLA) if necessary.

Assessment criteria and methods

Grade will be evaluated based on the student’s understanding through assignments during each lecture.
