|Outline of Final Research Achievements
Practical and efficient organic synthetic methods are important to access to a variety of valuable compounds without forming a large amount of reaction wastes. During this research project, we developed homogeneous catalysts containing multi-metallic active sites, i.e. homogeneous cluster catalysts, for converting extremely difficult substrates or breaking strong chemical bonds by utilizing the metal-metal cooperative effect in the catalysts. We achieved alcoholysis of amides using an N,O-acyl rearrangement, cleavage of nitrogen-nitrogen multiple bonds at the metal-metal multiply bonded reaction site, and C-C bond activation of simple organic molecules using cooperative reactivity of metal catalyst/organic reductant.
