Making bonds by breaking bonds: An unconventional approach to making molecules

Seminar: Special Seminar | December 3 | 10:30 a.m.-12 p.m. | 775 Tan Hall

 Junichiro Yamaguchi, Department of Chemistry, Waseda University

 College of Chemistry

As we are in the business of making molecules, forming and breaking bonds are like two sides of the same coin: the construction of molecules with the desired architecture necessitates the ability to break specific bonds at will. We aim to break stable carbon–carbon bonds in order to create new bonds, and we will strive to design efficient catalysts to accelerate this process.
