Outline of the Project

Aromatic compounds are fundamental skeletons of medicines and materials. Therefore, if the synthetic method, which is efficient and rich in diversity, is developed, the invention of new medicines and highly efficient organic materials is expected. As one of such the synthetic methods the cross coupling reactions, which are able to functionalize or connect aromatic compounds, have been developed and the Nobel Prize in chemistry was awarded to this achievement in 2010. In this research, as a new method based on a new concept, I establish the synthetic method, which assembles aromatic compounds free from the already functionalized small organic compounds, and the invention of new medicines and highly efficient organic materials is aimed by using this new synthetic method.
