Content of research

The purpose of this department is the development of catalytic asymmetric processes that produce optically active organic compounds with high selectivity. We engage in the design and synthesis of novel optically active catalysts and reaction media based on new concepts, and their application to the energy-saving and environment-conscious processes directed towards practically useful asymmetric reactions.

Current Research Programs

  1. 1. Design and synthesis of novel optically active metal catalysts.
  2. 2. Development of new chiral spiro compounds and their application to enantioselective catalysis.
  3. 3. Development of multifunctional organocatalysts and their application to environment-conscious processes.
  4. 4. Development of green sustainable organic reactions using solid dispersant.
