Research Field

Synthetic Organic Chemistry

Research Subject

Development of new synthetic methods and catalysts for sustainable organic synthesis

Current Research

Modern society has been built upon the complex organic molecules provided by synthetic chemists. However, due to the negative impact of emissions and chemical wastes derived from industrial organic processes, a growing movement towards sustainable or Green chemistry has begun to emerge. With this in mind, our research is focused on providing new and efficient synthetic methods that can utilize renewable raw materials and energy.
