About the Research

Research Theme

Organic Chemistry


Photochemistry, Data Science, Fluorine Chemistry

Research Outline

We are trying to recycle greenhouse gases such fluoroform and utlizing them as cheap feedstocks to synthesis useful fluorinated organic componds. Besides, we are also pursuing C-F bond functionalization using photochemistry.
