我々のコア技術である多孔性配位高分子(PCP: Porous Coordination Polymer)は、有機金属構造体(MOF: Metal-Organic Framework)とも呼ばれ、京都大学 高等研究院 北川進特別教授の研究成果です。Atomisでは、コスト競争力が高い多孔性配位高分子の製造方法開発といったソリューション提供のみならず、多孔性配位高分子を用いた新たな価値を提供するアプリケーション展開を目指します。

Our core technology, porous coordination polymers (PCPs; also known as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs)), is based on research developed by Distinguished Professor Susumu Kitagawa at the Institute for Advanced Study at Kyoto University. Atomis aims not only to provide solutions such as the optimization for manufacturing processes of PCPs, but to also develop applications that provide innovative value using these materials.



What is PCP/MOF?
These solids are a sponge-like material with nano-sized pores and extremely large surface areas. The 3D structures of PCPs can be freely designed from a tremendously diverse range of metals and organic ligands. In other words, the pores of PCPs can be designed at the atomic scale, and it is possible to provide the exact molecular interactions that maximize adsorption and storage of gases and other low-molecular weight compounds. Recent studies reported from around the world have focused on new functions for PCPs, such as molecular separations, gas transportation, spatial alignment, synthesis and catalytic transformations, photoexcitation, electron conductivity, and high-density storage.
