Goal of this area
One of the ultimate goals of chemistry is to control the absolute and relative configurations of elements and design the bonds between the elements freely. Controlling the absolute configuration and asymmetry of the metallic center is a key to open up science for new materials of metallic elements that account for approximately 80% of the periodic table. This area intends to create a new scientific principle “Coordination Asymmetry” by the development of methodologies to build asymmetry and chirality of structural and electronic states with metal complexes and coordination space obtained from assembled complexes and its nano-micro level assembly based on the molecular level control of the coordination sphere of metal complexes.
