Researcher Q & A

Where are you from?

Kyoto city

Why did you become a researcher?

I chose chemistry as a career because … chemists understand the difference between ethanol and methanol

What is your favorite experiment, theory, device, reagent, lab equipment? Why do you like it?

Experiment: Crystallization of metal complexes; it makes a start for our chemistry.
Theory: frontier orbital theory; it gives a guideline for synthetic chemists
Instrument: Solid State NMR; we can observe spectrum without any treatments.

What is your hobby?

Detective and police fiction novels: I can be a detective in the fictive world Kabuki and Super kabuki: representation of human nature is fantastic European thriller movies: I quickly become entranced in the story
