Our research focuses on development of new synthetic strategies. We reported in 2004 that chiral phosphoric acid derived from (R)-BINOL functioned as chiral Bronsted acid catalyst for the first time. Since then, a range of chiral phosphoric acid catalyzed reactions have been developed in the worldwide. The Akiyama group focuses on extending the synthetic utility of the chiral phosphoric acid for the preparation of useful organic compounds and development of useful synthetic reactions.
