Research Areas

In order to discover and develop highly effective organic reactions and promote their practical utility, our group is concentrated on three correlative research areas listed below:

(1)New organic reactions. This part mainly focuses on transition metal catalyzed C-H functionalizations and decarboxylative crosscoupling reactions.

(2)Heterogeneous catalyzed organic reactions. This part of research mainly focuses on finding the relationship of construction and reactivity in nano catalysts as well as loaded catalysts in order to discover effective and recycle catalyzed systems which would eventually serve organic reactions.

(3)Mechanisms of organic reactions. This part mainly focuses on thorough research on the mechanisms of organic reactions for the design or optimization of new reactions as well as catalyzed systems.
