We carry out research in several areas at the interface of organic chemistry and polymer chemistry and are especially concerned with asymmetric synthesis, reactive polymers, and new polymer synthesis. We mainly focus on the development of new methods of asymmetric synthesis with the aid of polymer supported chiral catalysts. We are also considering statistical theory of protein (peptide) folding, which will provide a novel approach to design of new asymmetric catalyst system.
Theme1：Polymer-Immobilized Chiral Catalyst
