It has been extremely difficult, if not impossible to control reaction intermediates due to the fact that they immediately underwent structural transformation or dissociation. Research teams consisting of Professor Dong-Pyo Kim of POSTECH and Professor Jun-ichi Yoshida of Kyoto University devised a highly efficient synthesis method to control chemical reactions by 1/10000 of a second. This means it has become possible to produce certain molecules with high purity while inhibiting irrelevant reactions. The method proved to be applicable even under extremely low temperature and high pressure. A noteworthy feature in the accomplishment is that it made a breakthrough in producing high purity compounds, the results that were totally different from those of conventional reaction processes.
