Naohito has been developing Pd-catalyzed C-H activation of triazole derivatives. I found that C-H arylation proceeds selectively at C7 using benzotriazole, triazolopyridine derivatives, and aryl halides as substrates. He’s also developing regioselective C-C activation reactions using Pd catalysts. He has found that imidazole derivatives with a C2 alkyl group undergo C2 arylation selectively and are studying how the reaction proceeds.
