We are a young and active organic chemistry research group based at Sungkyunkwan University, Republic of Korea. Our research interests span from the invention of new catalytic organic transformations to the design of novel catalysts to uncover previously unexplored pathways. The primary research direction pursued in our group is, to exploit fundamental homogeneous catalysis as a tool for further multidisciplinary and practical applications in the synthesis of biologically relevant molecules, materials science, and biological science.
