Gary James RICHARDSAssociate Professor

Organic chemistry, Supramolecular chemistry, organic photofunctional chemistry pi-conjugated materials, azaacenes, pyrazinacenes

My reseearch is focused on the development of new pi-conjugated materials, their supramolecular assemblies and their photofuntional chemistry. Recently I have developed acene-like compounds in which the usual fused phenyl groups are replaced with fused pyrazine moieties. We call these compounds 'Pyrazinacenes'. I am now developing these materials as near infrared emitters for bioimaging applications and as low band-gap organic electronic materials.

I want to encourage students to take responsibility for their own research projects. A student has to learn how to go from carrying out instructions on a given plan, to develping their own original ideas and formulating their own research initiatives. To do this, we need to know the field and what has been done before, so that we don't just 're-invent the wheel'. In addition, keeping a close eye on developments in other areas can help to inspire a creative new approach to solving problems.

High-pressure science, Material inorganic chemistry, Solid state physics

To find the first material and phenomenon that no one has ever seen with using the HIGH-PRESSURE technique.

  1. High-pressure synthesis of HIGH-ENTROPY MATERIALS as new functional materials

  2. In-site observation of COLOR CHANGE depending on pressure.

  3. Design and synthesis of new MAGNET, SEMICONDUCTOR, and SUPERCONDUCTOR, and other functional material

Details: Look at my lab’s homepage .

Careful observation is essential to develop yourself.
Let’s enjoy everything with scientific eyes together.
