Own group aims to construct molecular structure and discover their reactivity that can contribute to interdisciplinary solutions for the important challenges in science. We have a fundamental interest in developing innovative synthetic strategies for potential applications. Particularly, we focus on efficient & green synthetic methodology development, complex molecule synthesis, and mechanistic studies to develop practical access to molecules of interest in catalysis, medicine, and organic materials. Currently, we are interested in developing synergistic catalysis effect in organic synthesis. It represents a rationally design innovative catalytic solutions to improve our access to molecular sciences.
