List of achievements

Research experience – Teruyuki Kondo –

Research experience (including work experience)

March 1989
Doctorate, Kyoto University, Graduate School of Engineering
Dissertation topic :” Studies on New Methodology for Carbon-carbon Bond Forming Reactions Using Group Ⅶ and Ⅷ Metal Complex Catalysts “

April 1989–July 1989
Research Fellow (PD), Japan Society for the Promotion of Science
Engaged in research on “development of new methodology for carbonylation reactions using group VII and VIII metal catalysts.” Specifically, engaged in research on “the optical, electrical, and thermal carbonylation reactions of alkyl halides containing β-hydrogen atoms.” Achieved the “development of a new technique for carbonylation reaction without β-hydrogen desorption reaction.”

August 1989–February 1996
Assistant, Kyoto University (School of Engineering, Fuel Chemistry Department)
Engaged in research on “development of alkene hydroacylation reaction through formyl group C–H bond activation,” “development of reductive N-heterocyclization reaction of nitro compounds using a Pd complex catalyst,” and “elucidation of the reactivity of π-allyl Ru complexes and development of a novel catalytic allylation reaction.” In particular, I was part of the team that developed bivalent π-allyl Ru complexes containing CO ligands with ambiphilic (i.e., both nucleophilic and electrophilic) reactivity based on the reaction substrate.
(Because of a reorganization in April 1993, I changed my position to Assistant, Kyoto University, Graduate School of Engineering, Department of Energy and Hydrocarbon Chemistry.)

March 1996–September 2006
Assistant Professor, Kyoto University (Graduate School of Engineering, Department of Energy and Hydrocarbon Chemistry)
Mainly engaged in research on the “synthesis of novel functional organic molecules by the oligomerization of heterologous alkenes,” “development of catalytic C–C bond breaking/carbon skeleton reconstruction reaction,” and “development of an efficient polymer reaction for functional group introduction into alkynes.” Achieved the “development of a method for high polymer conversion of organic resources” that can be used in the 21st century.

October 2006–March 2009
Science and Technology Professor , Kyoto University (Department of Energy and Hydrocarbon Chemistry, Graduate School of Engineering)
Participated in “Innovative Techno-Hub for Integrated Medical Bio-imaging” of the MEXT “Creation of Innovation Centers for Advanced Interdisciplinary Research Areas Program,” and conducted research on “synthesis of chiral dendrimer–amine coordinated Gd complexes as new highly sensitive MRI contrast agents.”

April 2009–presen
Professor, Kyoto University, Advanced Biomedical Engineering Research Unit (Graduate School of Engineering, Department of Energy and Hydrocarbon Chemistry/Chair of Fusion of Organic Chemistry and Biomedical Chemistry/Cooperating Chair of Molecular Probe Synthesis Laboratory)
In the same project, engaged in research on the “synthesis of a novel Gd MRI contrast agent with targeting function” and “creation of low-valent transition metal complex with a new structure and elucidation of its high-level catalytic function.

November 1994–November 1995
As a visiting scientist to work with Prof. K. Barry Sharpless (2001 Nobel chemistry laureate) at the Scripps Institute, I was engaged in research on the “synthesis of chiral dendrimers using an asymmetric dihydroxylation reaction.”
