Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Tohoku University 東北大学大学院薬学研究科・分子設計化学分野
Our group is committed to the development and mechanistic study of novel molecular transformations for organic synthesis. Our research programs are driven by a desire to uncover and understand unprecedented chemical reactivities and to exploit such reactivities in the design and development of efficient and selective organic reactions.
