The synthetic organic chemistry gives the method to construct organic compounds, with controlling the various chemical reactions.

  • The new synthetic reactions are developed using various organic or inorganic reagents applied elementary characteristics.

  • Fine synthetic organic reactions, recognizing the difference of the delicate structure like the optical or various stereo isomers, are developed.

  • Total synthesis of the valuable bioactive compounds was investigated using newly developed reactions.
