|Outline of Final Research Achievements
This study aims to make use of the unique features of the bowl-shaped π molecule “buckybowl", a partial framework of fullerenes.
we succeeded in the synthesis of many novel buckybowls, particularly nitrogen-containing heterobuckybowls, and revealed that they exhibited the unique character. We also succeeded in the construction of the supra-molecular structure using sumanene as a motif, and they showed several properties such as anisotropic pressure response, the formation of the isolated pore system, and an elastic discotic liquid crystals, and all of which has never been observed in the previous systems. In addition, we also elucidated the possibility of the high-density memory applied by bowl-inversion of sumanene on the metal surface.
