Exploration for Novel Organic Chemistry and Knowledge Creation


"Discovery by New Molecule". Having these words in minds, we are seeking for new synthetic organic reactions that afford environmentally benign processes for the production of important chemicals such as pharmaceuticals, agrichemicals, functional plastics and organic electronic materials. This is generally called "Green Chemistry". Crucial for the advance of green chemistry are "innovative, high performing catalysts" and "new reactions that allow for efficient molecular transformations".
