Bristol-Myers Squibb Lecture: Exploring the power of molecules by rapid synthesis catalysts
Seminar | April 18 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | Pitzer Auditorium, 120 Latimer Hall
The ultimate goal of our research group is to develop problem-solving innovative functional molecules that make a marked change in the form and nature of science and technology. During the last 10 years in Nagoya, we have pioneered an increasingly general synthesis platform for a range of functional molecules including molecular nanocarbons, π-conjugated organic materials, pharmaceuticals, and small molecules for plant biology and chronobiology. The uniqueness of our approach can be seen from the fact that most of the functional molecules that we have created were rapidly synthesized or discovered by our unique and powerful C-H activation catalysts and reactions. In this talk, I will introduce the most recent exciting discoveries from our laboratories.
Light refreshments served at The Coffee Lab at 10:50am.
