The fundamental goal of our research is to establish catalytic transformations with direct application to the synthesis and late-stage modification of biomolecules, such as saccharides, amino acids, and peptides. To achieve this, we combine traditional synthetic methodologies, such as radical chemistry and transition metal catalysis, with modern technologies, such as photocatalysis, to develop versatile and environmentally benign synthetic methodologies. Currently, there are two main research lines in the group:
None of our work would be possible without the financial support from the following organizations. Thank you!
