Our group struggles to find and design brand-new organic transformations including unexplored selective reactions. Toward the goal, transition-metal complexes are mainly employed as the catalysts.
Finding a novel organic transformation may stimulate development of advanced materials and innovative medicines, because the reaction allow us to access unknown and unobtainable compounds and structural motives. Furthermore, the reactions may facilitate the rapid construction of compound libraries containing a series of chemical substances, which are used as the samples for developing new materials or drugs. From the above viewpoint, we are studying on synthetic organic chemistry with organometallic and other catalyses. We hope to develop epoch-making organic reactions and contribute the progress of medicinal and material sciences. We dream that our reactions will be frequently used by many researchers and manufacturers for their projects and businesses.
