Hiroshi Yamagishi, Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology, wins a CSJ Student Presentation Award 2016.An award presented to students who had a distinguished oral presentation in the 96th CSJ Annual Meeting.
<About awarded research>
Molecular crystals are composed of discrete molecules held together by very weak intermolecular interactions.
Here we report our serendipitous finding of a novel molecular crystal with nano porous structure.Even though the crystal is sustained by very weak intermolecular interactions, it exhibits high thermal stability.
It is big honor to receive the student presentation award. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Prof. Takuzo Aida and also our lab members for all of their support.
