Functional Organic Chemistry

  • In this laboratory, we aim at development of new synthetic organic reactions and methodologies by means of organometallic compounds toward new types of organic molecules and polymers for functional materials. In particular, catalytic coupling reactions to construct a carbon-carbon bond with regio-, stereo- , and chemoselectivities are one of target reactions.
