 Design and development of coordination compounds wich catalyze selective oxygenation of various organic compounds with environmentally friendly reagents
(O2, H2O2, etc.) is an attractive but still challenging subject from the viewpoint of green
chemistry. In nature, some transition metal containing enzymes (= metalloenzymes) catalyze selective oxidation of hydrocarbons under physiological mild conditions. Therefore, bio-inspired metallocomplex catalysts may be a fruitful approach to green
oxidation catalysts.
 The following are the major projects of our group:
(1) Investigation on the reaction mechanism of non-heme metalloenzymes by model complexes.
(2) Design and development of metallocomplex catalysts (homogeneous catalysts & heterogeneous immobilized metallocomplex catalysts) applicable to green oxidation reactions.



Fields of our research interests

Bioinorganic Chemistry (Enzyme model), Coordination Chemistry (O2 activation)

Catalytic Chemistry (Biomimetic oxidation)
