Fluorescent molecules, molecular design, physical organic chemistry

Yamaguchi works on a variety of topics in the general fields of main group chemistry and physical organic chemistry. In particular, emphasis is placed on the development of new functional π-electron materials possessing unusual photophysical and electronic properties. On the basis of the new design concepts emanating from his lab, he is able to exploit the features of various main group elements as well as the newly developed synthetic methodologies, various types of functional materials have been developed; including the key molecule in commercial organic electroluminescent devises. He will be involved mainly in the development of innovative bio-imaging tools, collaborating with the groups of Higashiyama, Irle, Itami, and Crudden.
