    Synthesis of Low Dimensional Materials for UV and Gas Sensing Applications

    The growth of nanoscaled materials has attracted enormous attention from scientific community, particularly one-dimensional (1D) semiconductor nanostructured materials such as nanotubes, nanowires, nanobelts, nanopores, and nanorods. They are extensively functionalized as the basic building blocks to fabricate various nano-devices, owing to the influence of their reduced dimensionality, unique surface morphology, quantum confinement and tunnelling transport, which often exhibit improved and enhanced functional properties as compared to their bulk counterparts or thin films. Nevertheless, the properties of the nanoscaled materials, as well as device performances based on these nanostructures are strongly affected and influenced by their size, shape, surface morphology and chemical composition.

    Asymmetric Synthesis of Halogenated Compounds Directed Toward Drug Development

    Asymmetric synthesis of chiral halogen-containing compounds is a highly useful synthetic operation in medicinal chemistry. Because the selective replacement of hydrogens in biologically active compounds with fluorine atoms sometimes leads to the enhancement of the biological activity of the compounds. Furthermore, chlorinated, brominated, or iodinated compounds are recognized as useful synthetic intermediates because of their good leaving ability. In particular, once a halogen atom is introduced at the chiral carbon center with asymmetric induction, the resulting compounds can be converted into various chiral molecules while maintaining their stereogenic integrity. This process is known to be an efficient synthetic tool for the preparation of complex chiral molecules such as natural products and drug candidates. In this presentation, I would like to introduce our recent works on the synthesis of chiral halogenated compounds as well as the general importance of asymmetric synthesis in pharmaceutical sciences.
