Interview 06

Shū Kobayashi

In Pursuit of Environmentally Friendly Chemistry: Innovations in Organic Synthesis Supported by Analytical Instruments

Shū Kobayashi
Professor, School of Science, The University of Tokyo

Advances in chemistry have led to tremendous benefits to society and have impacted nearly every aspect of our lives, including healthcare, energy, food production, and new materials. Although society has been enriched by this progress, the production of chemical substances has also created serious environmental issues, such as pollution and environmental contamination. At the University of Tokyo, Professor Shū Kobayashi is leading the way to develop environmentally friendly or “Green" chemistry.
