Development of new methodologies for organic reactions

 Development of new methodologies for activating target molecules efficiently is highly desired. Our group is focusing on transformation reactions promoted under photo-irradiation conditions toward environmental friendly organic synthesis, and developing useful reactions based on photo-activation of substrates and catalysts. Our group is also interested in development of new functional groups for effective activation of less reactive substrates in catalysis.
