Research and Achievements
We are exploring useful and  novel organic reactions  for medicinal and process chemistry, which is not only environmentally benign but also safe for chemists and engineer. To realize the research purpose, we study the creation of new reagents and catalysts to enable their reactions and reveal the reaction mechanism.
