Kobayashi Lab has studied technological development of bio-interfacial and environmental materials which noticed that the biomass and their intelligent functionality. Herein, in their sustainable and environmental view, each material is related to control the material structure and nature from micro-scale to molecular scale and is to give novel intelligence and functionality of polymer, polymer-inorganic composite and inorganic materials mainly prepared from biomass and industrial-wastes. In addition, Environment friendly materials are other research subjects in environmental conservation. At the moment, industrial technologies related with these materials are targeted to smart & practical application in environmental pollution control, electronics device, and biotechnological and industrial medical field. In particular, developing industry-academia cooperation aiming at the industrization as departed from our group at Nagaoka University of Technology aggressively. A study is being advanced by a global point of view and an international cooperation study is being performed through Mexico, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Canada and there are a lot of students studying abroad in laboratory with abundant in the internationalism.

Our faculty espouses the spirit of overcoming challenges and recruits students who are inspired to engage in the development of new materials and carefully observe phenomena to engage in logical pursuits, students with flexible thought processes and initiative who have good human values. Our intake consists of students from a wide range of backgrounds not only from chemistry, biology and materials science but also from electrical and mechanical engineering backgrounds, and the program has a clearly defined early completion system for outstanding students.
