Our reserch interests are facile synthesis of polymeric materials from abundant non-fossil resources, e.g., carbon dioxide, carbon disulfide, and terpenes.
We are also exploring unique polymerization systems depending on highly chemo-selective reactions. We attained controlled cyclopolymerization through large-ring formation (> 10) and the first atom-economic and sequence controlled polyaddition of three monomers.
