Noyori Laboratory

This movie requires Flash Player 9

The current research programs of our laboratory:
  • Invention of efficient synthetic methods, strategies, and concepts to solve challenging synthetic problems
  • Cost-effective and/or programmable synthesis of various classes of important compounds
  • Creation of significant properties or functions (catalysts and materials) utilizing synergistic effects of intra-and inter-molecular recognition
  • Synthesis of previously uncovered molecules that are architecturally interesting
  • Discovery of new functional molecules (or molecular assemblies) with potential toward the development and understanding of materials science and life science
