Plenary Lecture

Jean-Marie Lehn

Jean-Marie Lehn

(Université Louis Pasteur and Collège de France, France)

The 1987 Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry for the development and use of molecules with structure-specific interactions of high selectivity.

Invited Lectures

Takashi Kato

Takashi Kato

(The University of Tokyo, Japan)

Prof. Kato is a leading scientist in the field of functional materials. His research focuses on design, syntheses, structural control, and functionalization of self-assembled materials such as liquid crystals, gels, electron-and ion-active molecular assemblies and polymer/inorganic hybrids.

Bert Meijer

Bert Meijer

(Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands)

Prof. Meijer is investigating complex molecular systems and supramolecular chemistry with special emphasis on combining organic chemistry with polymers and bioactive systems. The research topics of his group include supramolecular polymers, multivalent architectures, supramolecular electronic materials, biomaterials and the stereochemistry of complex supramolecular systems.

Eiji Yashima

Eiji Yashima

(Nagoya University, Japan)

Prof. Yashima is a leading chemist in the filed of helical polymers. His research includes the design and synthesis of helical molecules, supramolecules, and polymers with novel functions, and applications to chiral materials for asymmetric catalysis and enantioseparation.

Jean M. J. Fréchet

Jean M. J. Fréchet

(University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, U.S.A.)

Jean Fréchet is Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at UC Berkeley and Scientific Director at the Molecular Foundry of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. His work focuses on functional polymers, from fundamentals to applications.

Haruyuki Makio

Haruyuki Makio

(Catalysis Science Laboratory, Mitsui Chemicals, Inc., Japan)

Dr. Makio has engaged in research on olefin polymerization catalyzed by transition metals, since he joined Mitsui Chemicals. He has been particularly interested in synthesis of polymer materials with high added value using homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis.
