Chitin nanofiber extracted from crab shell and its health care properties
Dr. Shinsuke IFUKU,
Associate Professor, Graduate School of Engineering,
Tottori University
President, Marine Nano-fiber
Tottori is famous for the crab. Considerable amount of crab shell is thrown away every year. For the efficient utilization of the industrial waste, novel material “CHITIN NANOFIBER” were extracted from crab shell. The nanofiber has variety of efficient biological properties to enhance our health and beauty. Venture company “MARINE NANOFIBER” has been launched from Tottori University to provide the nanofiber as a functional material.

Control of Thermal Expansion by Negative Thermal Expansion Materials
Dr. TAKENAKA Koshi,
Professor, Department of Applied Physics,
Nagoya University
Significant recent advances in technology require control of thermal expansion of solid materials. Materials that contract on heating, or negative thermal expansion materials, can control thermal expansion of materials by forming composites. Mechanisms and materials of negative thermal expansion as well as control of thermal expansion of electronic devices and fabrication of composites using these materials are reviewed with emphasis on recently discovered giant negative thermal expansion materials.

Smart Polymers for Biomedical Applications
Dr. Mitsuhiro Ebara,
MANA Associate PI,
International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA),
National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS)
Our research group is interested in developing ‘smart’ biotechnologies using stimuli-responsive polymers that respond to small changes in external stimuli with large discontinuous changes in their physical properties. These ‘smart’ biomaterials are designed to act as an “on-off” switch for drug delivery technologies, gene therapy, affinity separations, chromatography, diagnostics etc.

Functionalization of fiber and polymer using supercritical fluid – Principle and industrialization-
Prof. Dr. 
Guest Professor,
Headquarters for Innovative Society-Academia Cooperation,
University of Fukui
A new attempt has been done to give special functions on fibers and polymer materials using supercritical carbon dioxide in place of water. This method has advantages; simple processes, reducing energy and unnecessity of waste water treatment. In this paper, we explain the basic principle of dyeing / functional processing of fibers and polymers using supercritical fluids and the current state of practical application utilizing this principle.
