报告题目：Development of New Catalytic Reactions Involving the Activation of Traditionally Inert Bonds
Prof. Naoto Chatani got his B.S. (1979), M.S. (1981) and Ph.D. (1984) degrees from the Department of Applied Chemistry, Faculty of Engineering, Osaka University. During 1988 and 1989, he conducted his postdoctroral research with Professor Scott E. Denmark at University of IIIinois, Urbana-Champaign in the US. He has been an assistant (1984-1992) and associate (1992-2003) professor at the Osaka University, and was promoted to full Professor in 2003.
The research programs of Prof. Chatani have focused on the invention of new synthetic methodologies, with a particular emphasis on the design and development of novel catalytic system by taking advantage of unique features of transition metal complexes. Major progress has been achieved in the field of catalytic reactions via the cleavage of C-H, C-C, C-F, and C-O bonds. The results of these studies have been published in J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., Chem. Sci., Chem. Eur. J., etc. He has been awarded many awards including the CSJ of Young Chemist Award (1991), the Nagoya Silver Medal (2013), the Japan Research Front Awards (2016), the CSJ Award (2017), Humboldt Research Award (2017), Arthur C. Cope Scholars Award (2018), and Sprague Lectureship in Organic Chemistry at University of Wisconsin (2018).
