Let's create our Future by
synthetic organic chemistry
Hirofumi came back safely from La Jolla🌵 and started working in Tottori🐫
We have no words to thank Prof. Phil S. Baran, Dr. Yu Kawamata, TSRI, and JSPS🙇
The Tottori Carbohydrate Week (5th-10th September) has successfully ended 🦀🐫🐪
Masaki won the poster prize in the 7th FCCA Symposium/Forum of Young Glycoscientists 2023.
Masa showed our school pride. Congratulations🏆
🏀What a super shot!🏀
🦀🐫We are in the middle of the Carbohydrate Week of Tottori🐫🦀
Prof. Shinsuke Ifuku organized the 37th annual meeting of the JSCC.
Prof. Jun-ichi Tamura is organizing the 42th annual meeting of the JSCR.
Dr. Khoki Fujikawa will organize the Forum of Young Glycoscientists.
🔥🔥🔥New Mega Hot Plate (MHP) has just arrived🔥🔥🔥
MHP might be regarded as a perfect machine for heating a whole bunch of TLC plates, beakers, and Erlenmeyer flasks at the same time in the synthetic laboratory😁
MHP for what 🤔???
Are you interested in oligosaccharides and/or polysaccharides?
Please register the joint symposium of JSCC🦀 & JSCR🐫 in Tottori, right now.
The 42nd annual meeting of JSCR is co-sponsored by Tottori University.
Registration of the 42th Annual Meeting of Japanese Societry of Carbohydrate Research organized by Prof. Jun-ichi Tamura (Tottori Univ.) has been started🐫🐪🐫
Please register from the meeting website by 31st July.
Here we start the new academic year 2023👍
The group has 20 members including 17 students and 1 postdoc and 2 faculties.
Dr. Shuichi Hayase served about 30 years in Tottori Unversity.
We wish you good health and happy life on your retirement💕
Although the age is just a number, we celebrate the birthday.
Thank you guys, I love you all💗 Happy birthday, Yui san🎉
The thrid paper of Mirai with Stefan has been accepted.
This is a collaborative work between Germany and Japan🍻
The special symposium of "Future of Sustainable and Functional Redox Chemistry" in the 103rd CSJ annual meeting was held succssfully🧪🧪
We deeply acknowledge invited speakers and a large audience😉
Japan advances, but the world of redox chemistry won this morning🥇
Today, 1 doctral course, 2 master course, and 7 bachelor students graduated🌸
A half of them will stay this group for further research🧪 and education📚
Dr. Munenori Inoue (Sagami Chemical Research Inst.) and Toshiki will organize the special symposium "Future of Sustainable and Functional Redox Chemistry" in the 103rd CSJ annual meeting on March 22🧪
Invited speakers: Prof. Shinsuke Inagi (TIT), Prof. Hisashi Shimakoshi (Kyushu Univ.), Prof. Mio Kondo (Osaka Univ.), Prof. Hirohisa Ohmiya (Kyoto Univ.), Prof. Yoshiko Miura (Kyushu Univ.), Prof. Manabu Abe (Hiroshima Univ.)
We welcome the 3rd year students 😄😄😄😄😄😄😄 from the bottom of our hearts💗
Norihiko will receive an award🏆
He did a truly amazing job during PhD and postdoc under supervision of Prof. Kazunori Sugiyasu.
Ben (Prof. Benjamin Swarts, Central Michigan Univ.) gave a great talk👏
30 people inculding 12 faculties joined the lecture.
Masaki and Ziyi won the department chair award for the presentation of their bachelor thesis.
We are proud of you. Congratulations🏆🏆
Setsubun of the group😝
👹 Absolutely Full
👹👹👹 Not me
Azad successfully completed his dissertation defense😃
We appreciate both onsite and online participation in the snow⛄
Prof. Kazuhiko Matsumoto delivered the lecture on plastic crystals and their applications🔋
Over 50 students and faculties joined the online GSC seminar.
Dr. Shinya Hanashima joined our department as a full professor😃
Shinya successfully synthesized Sialyl Lewis X in the Seeberger group at ETH Zurich. Toshiki involved in the project but came to a dead end🙈
Mirai was the tallest in our group. Now he is not 😅
The Symposium of the 10th anniversary of the Center for Research on Green Sustainable Chemistry was held successfully. We deeply acknowledge guests, invited speakers and exective members especially faculties and students of the Katada group🙇
Organizer: Prof. Naonobu Katada (Tottori University)
A summary of the sympsium was published in the newspaper (Nihonkai Shimbun) on 16th December, 2022 together with a picture of Emeritus Professor Toshiyuki Itoh during his lecture.
We are going to become the elite chemists🧪🧪🧪
Dr. Sasaki and five students of the junior high school attached to the university enjoyed the synthesis of organic luminescent molecules. The Suzuki-Miyaura coupling is useful to make carbon-carbon bonds and famous as a Norbel Prize reaction.

10 years: Time flies quickly⏱💨
Toshiki joined the Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology 10 years ago (November 1st, 2012). He deeply acknowledges continuous supports from Professor Emeritus Toshiyuki Itoh, colleagues, staffs, and students of the University during that time. Together with Dr. Norihiko Sasaki and co-workers, he will contribute to excellence of the University through chemical research and education at the boundaries of organic chemistry and others research areas.
Hirofumi received the poster award at the 36th annual meeting of The Japanese Society for Chitin and Chitosan🦀🦀🦀
Organizer: Prof. Fumitaka Oyama (Kogakuin University)
He got another one👍

Carbohydrates are one of the most abundant organic molecules. We are interested in chemical synthesis and biological applications of oligosaccharides, although synthetic chemistry of sugar is not so sweet... [Learn More]
Most of organic molecules are reactive under the electrochemical conditions; however, numbers of useful methods for selective transformations of the specific functional group in the molecule are still limited. [Learn More]
