  • Brilliant Minds - Shigeyoshi Inoue Chemist

    They are among the best in their scientific fields. With the series "Brilliant Minds", DW-TV introduces top-notch young researchers from all over the world who live and work in Germany.

    Shigeyoshi Inoue is 30 years old, and is currently pursing a career in chemistry at the Technische Universität Berlin. His field of research is the production and characterization of novel molecules such as chemical combinations of silicon and carbon. Organic silicon compounds are not found in nature, but they could provide the basis for a whole new range of useful materials in both, chemistry and medicine.
