Our emphasis is on the exploration of new synthetic methods, strategies, and concepts to solve challenging synthetic problems to realize ideal chemical synthesis and molecular catalysis, thereby putting forward the revolution of environmentally benign chemical technology for 21th century.
(i) Activation of alcohols and utilizing them as electrophiles using molecular catalysis
(ii) Degradation of biomass such as cellose, amylose, or lignin, etc. to make them as important carbon resources for 21th century
(iii) Activation of CO2 and using it as a important C1 resource for the 21th century’s chemical synthesis
(iv) Chemical Synthesis of sugar and deoxy-sugar derivatives of pharmaceutical importance
(v) Chemical synthesis without waste: changeover of molecular catalysis from strongly acidic or basic to neutral
(vi) Hydrogenation using novel molecular catalysts
(vii) Molecular manipulation of hydrogen bonds and dative bonds for generating molecular catalysis
(viii) Molecular catalysis based on hydrogen atom transfer
(ix) Chemical process involving H2O: embedding water into, or liberating water from, a carbon chain
