March 14, 2019: Professor Wei Zhang from UMass-Boston visited the department. We have enjoyed his visit and wonderful research talk on “Development of Small Molecule Inhibitors & Probes for Druggable Targets"
March 11, 2019: We are delighted to host Professor James Morken from Boston College to visit the department. His seminar talk entitled “Seteroselective Catalysis with Organoboron Reagents"
March 4, 2019: In the afternoon, Professor Liagnqiu Lu from Central China Normal University delivered an excellent seminar on the topic of "Visible Light Shows the way: Transition Metal Catalysis in Organic Synthesis"
March 4, 2019: Professor Gary Moldander from UPenn visit the department that is hosted by us. We enjoyed his seminar on "single Electron Process Enabling Organic Synthesis"
Jan. 9, 2019: Yang and Haifeng’s paper on reductive C-O bond scission of tertiary alkyl oxalates was published in JACS (click publications for details). Congrats!
Over the past few years, our group has been working in the field of reductive coupling of two different electrophiles
The second research field in our group emphasizes the design of robust H-bond/ion pair-mediated building blocks in aqueous media that ultimately find use for functional materials and biological studies
