When NMR is used as an imaging mode with gradient coils, it is referred to as magnetic resonance imaging, which is used for non-invasive diagnostics of diseases. In my research, MRI is used for determining brain function non-invasively by utilizing a change of paramagnetic deoxyhemoglobin. In my talk, I will discuss basic idea of functional MRI, current research lines, and IBS center’s NMR facility.

Multi-dimensional optical or vibrational spectroscopy is a special class of time domain nonlinear optical spectroscopy that employs multiple ultra-fast laser pulses to obtain information about the couplings between quantum states in a variety of molecular or condensed matter systems. Since these couplings are often sensitive to the detailed structural configuration of the active molecules and the overall dynamical system evolution including interactions with the local environment, a great deal of information can potentially be obtained. It is especially well suited to follow the evolution of quantum coherences in light initiated reactions, including photosynthesis, or as an exceptionally useful probe of protein dynamics in solution. In fact, as demonstrated over the years, a vast number of different experimental configurations are possible depending on the chosen pulse sequences, geometric arrangement and polarization and signal detection method. Hopefully, this talk imparts a sound conceptual basis that will enable the diligent researchers to understand the importance of this extensive and rapidly growing research field.

Especailly, organolithium compounds have been actively utilized in the construction of those complexes. The representative complexes1 and 2 can be prepared in two steps in Kg-scale, which exhibit high activity, high 1-octene incorporation, and high molecular weight in the ethylene/1-octene copolymerizations. Complex 1 is currently used in industry (LG) for the production of polyolefin elastomers (~80,000 T/y) and eventually complex 2was licensed out to Lotte Chem in 2011 with affront fee 600,000,000 Won. 2) CO2/epoxide copolymerization A highly active catalyst (3) was discovered for the CO2/epoxide copolymerization. Complex 3 showed a high TON up to ~20000 and a high turnover frequency (TOF) of ~20000 h-1 that produced a strictly alternating copolymer with a high molecular weight (Mn) of up to 300000. The catalyst was licensed out to SK in 2008 with affront fee 600,000,000 Won. 3) New compostable polymers from CO2 High-molecular-weight poly(1,4-butylene carbonate-co-terephthalate)s were prepared by condensation copolymerizations of 1,4-butanediol, dimethyl carbonate, and dimethyl terephthalate, which shows the comparable thermal properties to the commercialized compostable polyesters such as PLA, PHA, PBAT, and PBSA. The polymers were licensed out to Lotte Chem in 2014 with affront fee 500,000,000 Won.

제 목 : Evaluation of Trehalose Derivatives as Radiotracers Specific for Tuberculosis in Animal Models of Disease 연 사 : 이승서 교수님(University of Southampton) Evaluation of Trehalose Derivatives as Radiotracers Specific for Tuberculosis in Animal Models of Disease We are developing PET radiotracers specific to Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb). In evaluating new treatments, [18F]-2-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose (FDG) has been shown to be a useful tool, but it is not highly correlated with bacterial burden. We are evaluating trehalose radiotracers which may be covalently incorporated in vivo into the Mtb cell wall to give a PET signal directly correlated to bacterial burden rather than reporting on inflammation or other host response. We have designed several [18F]-labeled trehalose derivatives and are evaluating them in animal models of tuberculosis. Two of the probes, [18F]-6-fluoro-6-deoxytrehalose (6-FTre) and [18F]-epi-4-fluoro-4-deoxytrehalose (epi-4-FTre) are chemically synthesized in a method similar to [18F]-2-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose (FDG) from peracetylated precursors, and one probe, [18F]-2-fluoro-2-deoxytrehalose (2-FTre), is chemoenzymatically synthesized in a one-pot, three-enzyme cocktail from [18F]-FDG. All three were initially evaluated in Mtb-infected rabbits by acquiring PET/CT scans and blood and urine samples for metabolism analysis. The 2-FTre probe is also currently being evaluated in a non-human primate model of tuberculosis. In initial experiments in Mtb-infected rabbits, the 6-FTre probe was rapidly metabolized to [18F]-6-fluoro- 6-deoxyglucose. However, the epi-4-FTre was metabolically stable and did label lesions in the rabbit lung. A typical signal-to-noise for labeling was 2-3:1. The 2-FTre gave a slightly higher signal-to-noise and also appeared to give some differential labeling when compared to FDG. However, we saw potential probe metabolism and decided to change to a marmoset model of tuberculosis, which should express lower levels of trehalase than rabbits. The 2-FTre is currently under evaluation in a marmoset model of disease and appears to be labeling lesions selectively. No metabolism is observed in blood or urine of the marmosets. The trehalose derived probes are demonstrating uptake in PET scans at the site of Mtb lesions. This technology will allow us to selectively label Mtb infection and monitor treatment in animals on experimental drug regimens.
안녕하세요. 다음주 화요일(3월 8일)에 Plenary Seminar가 진행됩니다. 참석 부탁드립니다. 감사합니다. ====================================== 제 목 : Pot Economy in Total Synthesis 연 사 : Prof.Yujiro Hayashi(Department of Chemistry, Tohoku University, Japan) 일 시 : 2016년 3월 8일(화) 오후 4시 15분 장 소 : 화학관 첨단강의실(330118호) -------------------------------------- Pot Economy in Total Synthesis Yujiro HayashiDepartment, Tohoku University, JapanE-mail: email@example.com://www.ykbsc.chem.tohoku.ac.jp One-pot operations are an effective method for both carrying out several transformations and forming several bonds in a single-pot, while at the same time cutting out several purifications, minimizing chemical waste generation, and saving time. Thus, a one-pot reaction can be not only efficient, but also green and environmentally friendly, and “pot-economy” should be considered in planning a synthesis.1 Organocatalyst is an effective catalyst to carry out several reactions in a same vessel. Our group2 and Jørgensen’s group3 independently discovered that diphenylprolinol silyl ether, which is easily synthesized from proline, is an effective organocatalyst in the reaction nvolving enamine and iminium ion as a reactive intermediate. We have been investigating the application of this catalyst to the one-pot synthesis of biologically active compounds. We have already reported three pot synthesis of (-)-oseltamivir, a neuraminidase inhibitor used in the treatment of human influenza, based on the diphenylprolinol silyl ether mediated Michael reaction of aldehyde and nitroalkene as a key step. Recently we have accomplished “one-pot” synthesis of (-)-oseltamivir without evaporation nor solvent exchange by the modification of the previous three pot synthesis.4 We further applied one-pot synthetic strategy to the total synthesis of prostaglandin E1methyl ester, and accomplished three “one-pot” synthesis of this biologically important molecule.5 Recently (S)-baclofen was synthesized via one-pot sequential reaction from the commercially available compounds.A recent progress in the one-pot synthesis will be described.

In addition, ultrashort pulse duration downs to the attosecond scale opened new possibilities in many scientific research fields of physics and chemistry. Here our newly developed HHG-driven time- and angle- resolved PES set-up will be presented. The new machine is based on an apertureless time-of-flight electron spectrometer and a femto-second table-top laser light source. The spectrometer is equipped with supplemental pumping ports to extend the operational pressure up to 10-4 mbar range. Recently, we have studied the HHG from the gas-filled waveguide when using mixtures of two rare gases (Ar and Ne) as a nonlinear gas medium. The admixing of Ne into Ar gas can improve the generation yields of harmonics under slight phase mismatching conditions by a factor of 2. It is attributed to an improvement of the phase matching in the gas mixture. Together with our new experimental set-up, our new observation on the improved efficiency of HHG process by using two rare gas mixtures will be presented.

Based on these studies, we have developed new hybrid materials with interesting optical and magnetic properties. Furthermore, we have incorporated functional polymers such as conjugated polymers and DNA into amphiphilic structures, and showed that their properties can be drastically modified through self-assembly. These results demonstrate that amphiphilic self-assembly is a powerful tool not only for making complex nanoscale architectures but also for manipulating materials properties.
