About the Research

Research Theme

Development of asymmetric organocatalytic reactions using robot-assisted screening techniques


Asymmetric Catalysis, Organocatalysis
Research Outline

My research focuses on developing acid-catalyzed transformations using so-called confined organocatalysts. My approach involves the utilization of robot-assisted screening techniques to gather experimental screening data. Additionally, I aim to build my knowledge of computational chemistry and its applications in organic synthesis and organocatalytic reactions.
