Welcome to Hyunwoo KIM Group at KAIST Chemistry
Our research is centered on synthetic organic chemistry combining physical organic, organometallic, and computational chemistry. We rationally design small organic compounds that can be used for the development of highly selective and efficient new catalysts that mediate fundamentally interesting and useful organic reactions. More specifically, we are interested in the development of stereoselective catalysts to make chiral compounds with high enantiopurity which are valuable for pharmaceutical industry.
