Takara Research Group was established in summer 2003 at the Department of Chemistry, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa located in the beautiful Mānoa valley, Honolulu, Oʻahu. Since April 2007 Prof. Satoshi Takara, the principal investigator, has moved back to the University of the Ryukyus in Okinawa where he was raised and born. The members in the Takara group are involved in exploratory synthesis of transition-metal catalysts that are potentially applicable in organic transformation, small molecule activation and energy conversion.
