Areas of specialization
Laboratory/research office Organic Synthesis Laboratory
The ability to create a desired material at will is a very attractive prospect. Organic synthesis realizes this possibility at the molecular level. Cyclic compounds containing a nitrogen or oxygen molecule in their framework (heterocyclic compounds) are widely used in functional materials such as medicines, agrochemicals and dyes. However, these compounds are often difficult to obtain easily, and sometimes are hitherto unknown. Our group is working to develop easy, efficient methods for the synthesis of such compounds.
