This project, "The New World of Organic Chemistry Using Water as a Solvent," aims creation of new Organic Chemistry based on the use of water as a solvent. This study contains six subthemes with different angles including development of catalytic asymmetric reactions in water, development of novel catalysts and novel carbon-carbon bonding forming reactions in water, and so on. As a result, unique reactivities and selectivities, which are observed not in organic solvents but in water, have been revealed, and it was found that metal oxides and metal hydroxides worked as efficient catalysts in water for several useful synthetic reactions. Furthermore, asymmetric catalysis for carbon-carbon bonding forming reactions has been attained in 100% water, and thus, "Organic Chemistry in Water" has been greatly progressed.
