Research Themes

Synergistic Cu(I)/Ga(III) catalyzed Conia-ene reaction

Conia-ene Reaction is originally known as the thermal intramolecular ene reaction of enolizable carbonyl compounds with tethered alkene or alkyne moiety. The utility of this reaction has been limited by its harsh reaction conditions. Recently much attention has been directed to the Conia-ene reaction using various metal catalysts, which has allowed the reaction to proceed under mild conditions. We investigated the catalytic Conia-ene reaction with a focus on cationic Cu(I) as alkyne activator. As a result, synergistic Cu(I)/Ga(III) catalytic system for the Conia-ene reaction has been developed. In the presence of CuOTf・1/2C6H6 and Ga(OTf)3, various acetylenic 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds underwent the Conia-ene reaction under mild conditions in moderate to good yields.

Study on Asymmetric Reactions using Optically Active Organoselenium Reagents

Study on Asymmetric Reactions using Optically Active Organoselenium Reagents Oxyselenenylation reactions involving olefin with the trans-addition of electrophilic selenium reactant and oxygen nucleophile, have been used frequently as they can stereoselectively introduce two kinds of functional group onto the two carbon atoms of olefin at once. In addition, since the reaction develops into an asymmetric reaction through the use of an optically active selenium reactant, its utility is improving. However, because the substrate of the asymmetric reaction has been limited to simple olefin, we used vinyl ether as a substrate and found that optically active acetal can be synthesized. We subsequently conducted synthesis of a variety of natural products with a new synthesis method that involves using the optically active acetal that is obtained.

Study on Ce(IV)-catalyzed asymmetric oxidative radical reaction

Study on Ce(IV)-catalyzed asymmetric oxidative radical reaction Oxidative radical C-C bond forming reaction with ceric ammonium nitrate (CAN) has only been induced in limited polar solvents, such as water, methanol, and acetonitrile, due to CAN’s solubility. We investigate the hypothesis that the reaction could be induced in the organic phase if quaternary ammonium salt is added as a phase transfer catalyst (PTC) in a 2-phase system consisting of water and nonpolar solvent.In addition, we conduct research on canalization of the Ce(IV) reactant used and desymmetrization with optically-active PTC.
