Research & Development is our Core


Research and Development System and Initiatives


Four research groups,
over fifty researchers in our R&D organization

Each laboratory elaborates R&D on organic and polymer synthesis techniques, and very high levels of purity along with our customers’ demands and market trends on one hand, and on new chemical compounds, new functionalities and applications, and more efficient techniques for synthesis on the other hand. The four research groups consist of: Photosensitive material research group (R&D on photosensitive materials used in producing semiconductors); Energy research group (R&D on ionic fluids and electrolytes);Aroma chemical research group(R&D on aroma chemical); and Next-generation technology research group (R&D on nanotechnology and biotechnology)

Three actions at Photosensitive Material Research Group to compete in the World Market

Cooperation with academia keeping up to date with the newest research
All of the R&D groups are working on the latest technologies in collaboration with specialists in the respective fields (e.g., the University of Tokyo and Waseda University).

Guest Lecturers from Major Universities
We have an Organic Compound Study Group headed by Dr. Kenji Mori, Organic compound technology is one of the core competences of our company. We also ask Dr. Mori as a consultant on organic synthesis for the entire company. The central role of polymers in our products makes polymer chemistry a crucial area of interest.

International Academic Conferences
Since the very beginning of R&D on photosensitive materials, we have let our young researchers participate in international conferences about lithography of semiconductor in the States to enhance their knowledge for the products as well as the network of contacts.

Consultant : Professor Kenji Mori

Professor Kenji Mori is a global leader in the field of bioactive natural products, in particular the synthesis of pheromones. In his research laboratory (Mori Research Lab), he both synthesizes pheromones himself, while instructing his lab members in organic synthesis, and instructing others in a rotating lecture style.
