Research and Development Organization

Research Center
We strive to acquire underlying technology and invent next-generation materials toward a new business - potentially our core business - in our targeted priority area.
Analysis Technology Center
We provides prompt and accurate solutions, using analyses with cutting-edge analytical equipment and computer science to cope with the technical issues faced by each section (research, technology and production).

Data Science & Informatics Promotion Office
We work on providing data driven solutions for material research and production by combining information technology with chemical expertise. We also aim to develop a chemical informatics platform and cultivate organizational data literacy for enhancement of sustainable competency.
Health & Medical Business Development Office Middle Molecule Research Group
As our new value creation, we are expanding a contract manufacturing business of GMP API of middle molecular drugs, such as oligonucleotides and oligopeptides, and are providing consistent services from synthesis examination to manufacturing and analysis. While strengthening our relationship with our partner companies, we are also developing our own DDS (Drug Delivery System) .

Cosmetics Business Office Cosmetics Materials Research Group
We have been developing multifunctional cosmetic ingredients using our proprietary materials and technologies with skincare and the peripheral areas as the core targets. In addition to the original materials that have been developed, we aim to become a “Proposal type cosmetic business” with a unique story by combining natural materials and processing technologies acquired through external alliances, further formulation development, and efficacy evaluations.
Process Catalysts Research Dept.
We focus on inventions that leverage next-generation catalyst technology, as well as developing catalysts for manufacturing chemicals centering on catalysts to manufacture acrylic acid toward establishing eco-friendly chemical manufacturing technology.

Superabsorbents Research Dept.
We are consistently engaged in activities related to superabsorbents such as basic research, the development of new products and processes and the utilization and provision of technical services, while supporting our core businesses to expand to overseas operations from a technological perspective.
Industrial & Household Chemicals Research Dept.
We are challenging the research and development of the performance materials with new value for broad applications, from daily consumer goods such as detergents to industrial fields such as automobiles, housing, construction and water treatment.

New Energy Materials Research Dept.
We strive to research and develop green energy-related materials such as lithium secondary butteries and fuel sell materials, as well as environmental catalysts such as denitration and dioxin decomposing catalysts, etc.
Electronics & Imaging Materials Research Dept.
We are engaged in the resarch and development of high-performance materials such as resin for optical materials, resist polymers for color filter and fine particles, maximizing our unique monomer and key technology in the area of electronics and imaging.

Process Technology Center
We are engaged in various activities, exploiting process engineering, including bench-scale testing, experiments using pilot plants, plant design and economic evaluations; all targeting the establishment of new production technology.
