The Yamamoto group has employed several applications in catalysis. The list of methodologies include Lewis and Brønsted acid catalysis, chiral Lewis acid catalysis, combined acid catalysis, asymmetric oxidation using V, Zr, Hf catalysts, super silyl chemistry to construct polyketide structures in a single pot, squalic acid catalysis, organoaluminum catalysis, and the development of amidation and esterification catalysts.
