February 1999 Society of Synthetic Organic Chemistry Research Planning Award "Design and synthesis of chiral N-oxide and its application to catalytic asymmetric synthesis reaction"
March 1999 Encouragement Award of the Pharmaceutical Society of Japan "Study on Synthesis of New Axial Chirality Biaryl Compounds and Catalytic Asymmetric Synthesis Reaction"
Outline of research Enantioselective asymmetric synthesis using chiralamine as a ligand, structural analysis of asymmetric metal complex, asymmetric molecule recognition of amino acid derivative by large cyclic host, development of highly stereoselective glycosylation reaction, using copper complex I have been studying the catalytic asymmetric synthesis of binaphthyl compounds. Currently, he is working on the development of asymmetric synthesis catalyzed by lithium binaphtholate and new synthetic reactions using organomolecular catalysts such as amine-N-oxide and phosphine oxide.
