Abstract

The late Emeritus Professor Tsutomu Katsuki, who was leading the field of catalytic asymmetric oxidation worldwide, suddenly passed away on October 30, 2014. Here we wish to commemorate him by highlighting his representative research works particularly on his unique catalytic systems for asymmetric alkene epoxidation, sulfoxidation, alcohol oxidation, oxidative coupling reactions with a personal view and memory.
