Heteroatom Chemistry Team

Heteroatom-containing organic compounds are known as useful functional materials, intermediate compounds for organic syntheses, and medicines and agricultural chemicals. In many cases, however, conventional syntheses of such heteroatom-containing organic compounds are still limited as desaltation reactions of halo-heteroatom bond with organometallics such as organomagnesium halides. Development of catalytic syntheses of heteroatom-compounds provides not only economical and environmentally friendly processes but also novel attractive functional chemicals.

Direct synthesis of key raw materials for the silicon chemical industry from sand or combustion ash

We are developing technologies that can convert inexpensive and abundant raw materials such as sand, combustion ash, and industrial by-products into functional materials.

Development of microwave assisted chemical reactions

For the efficient production of functional chemicals and materials with microwave assicted reactions, we investiagate the evaluation of microwave absorption properties of chemical substances and the development of innovative chemical reactions combined with catalytic technologies.

Development of a new synthetic method for silanols

We are developing a synthetic method for orthosilicate and its oligomers, which are the basic unit of glass.

Precise synthesis technology for silicones (polysiloxanes)

We are developing a technology to synthesize silicones with controlled molecular weight and end structure by a simple operation.
