In response to the quest for the green and sustainable production of valuable chemicals, such as pharmaceuticals, agrochemical, and functional materials, this laboratory focuses on the development of environmentally friendly "green" processes based on the newly developed cooperative catalysts, and their application to shortstop syntheses of biologically active natural and unnatural products. Following topics are currently investigated.
- (1) Development of Green Processes Based on Catalytic Activation of Unreactive Functional Group
- (2) Synthesis of Biologically Active Natural Products Using One-Pot Multistep Catalysis
- (3) Development of New Molecularly-Targeted Anticancer Drugs Catalytic Control of Chemoselectivities
