About the Research

Research Theme

Discovery of new reaction using boron active species


Boron, robotic synthesis, computational chemistry

Research Outline

I am trying to discover a new reaction based on the electron deficiency of boron and low electronegativity. Furthermore, I also aim to speed up reaction discovery by combining robotic synthesizer and computational chemistry.
