Nanoclusters, consisting of several to several-hundred atoms or molecules, are expected to exhibit novel functionalities. Using model compounds of metal-encapsulating caged and organometallic nanoclusters, we are aiming to provide a new road map for the creation of innovative nanodevices based on the functional nanocluster monolayers through fine arrangements of their assembly interfaces. In order to realize this goal, we focus this project on macro-scale periodic assembly of the functional nanoclusters for the characterizations and functional analyses of the nanocluster-assembled monolayers, establishing the concept of nanocluster material science.
