Research Interest

We are interested in novel catalytic reactions using

  • Frustrated Lewis Pairs (FLP)
  • Carbon–Heteroatom Bond Formations
to achieve unusual reactions through metal-free activation of small molecules (molecular hydrogen, olefins, alkynes, alkanes), increased activity of palladium complexes through ligand effects in C–N and C–S cross couplings.
