 Prof. Shohei SAITO was awarded Japanese Photochemistry Association (JPA) Prize for Young Scientist 2016 on his achievement of "Development of Flexible Fluorophores and Photofunctional Materials".

光化学協会奨励賞を受賞しました


Flexible fluorophore "FLAP" designed by Prof. Shohei Saito
The molecular design is based on the hybridization of the rigidity and the flexibility.
The rigidity makes them fluorescent while the flexibility changes its color.
We named this molecular system as "FLAP", namely, FLexible and Aromatic Photofunctional system.
