Prof. Ken-ichiro Itami (Nagoya University, Japan)

Challenges in Arene Assembling Chemistry
Prof. Ken-ichiro Itami

Prof. Itami is a synthetic organic chemist who has been promoting interdisciplinary organic synthesis. He has developed a highly selective and a highly efficient synthetic methodology through a novel proposal involving the ligands of palladium catalysts. His new methodology, which can assemble arenes in a simple way, is drawing a lot of attention for pharmaceutical and carbon material applications.

In the lecture, (1) catalytic C–H bond direct arylation of arenes, (2) rapid synthesis of pharmaceuticals and natural products, and (3) synthesis of novel carbon nano-materials were given.
