Recently, at the invitation of State Key Laboratory for Oxo Synthesis and Selective Oxidation, Professor Hajime Ito from Hokkaido Universitycame to Suzhou Academy of Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics,Chinese Academy of Sciences to have a visit and make academic exchanges. He also made an academic report named “Copper(I)-catalyzed borylation: from the early to current study”.
In his report, Professor Hajime Ito introduced the importance of organoboron compound in synthetic chemistry,the history of Copper(I)-catalyzed borylation,the latest development of asymmetric catalyzed borylation and the application of computer aid technology in ligand design and improvement. In 2000, professor Ito reportedCopper(I)-catalyzed borylation for the first time. After that, the report aroused great interest inborylation around the world.
