Introduction of Research

In the field of organic synthesis, many synthetic methods to transform organic molecules that have enriched our lives have been developed. Overlooking the organic synthesis from the point of view of physical chemistry, I try to discover innovative synthetic methods that create new organic molecules. In particular, I am working on the development of heterogeneous reactions using functional materials such as Metal-Organic Frameworks and thermo-responsive polymers. Furthermore, I will contribute to the development of chemistry and society through the creation of functional materials.
