We are working on "development of new and attractive molecules and reactions" in order to open up new fields in synthetic organic chemistry. As a result, we have succeeded in creating unprecedented unnatural chiral molecules such as chiral silicon molecules and dynamic planar-chiral molecules, and elucidating their unique properties. We are also developing a new asymmetric synthesis method and dynamic asymmetric induction method (DYASIN), to obtain optically active chiral molecules. Furthermore, we have succeeded in developing the addition-type ozone oxidation reaction and the non-catalytic click reaction device DACN, and are proceeding with the development of their applications.
