RESEARCH FIELDS

Organic Chemistry, Organic Synthesis, Molecular Catalysis Chemistry

 

RESEARCH INTERESTS AND SCIENTIFIC ACTIVITIES

The main emphasis of his research is on the development of new synthetic methods, strategies, and concepts to solve challenging synthetic problems for realizing ideal chemical synthesis and for generating as-yet unexplored molecules of significant interest. Representative projects include (1) ideal chemical synthesis through C-H bond transformation, (2) rapid synthesis of pharmaceutically relevant molecules and natural products, (3) synthesis and properties of optoelectronic materials, and (4) controlled bottom-up synthesis of structurally uniform nanocarbons such as carbon nanotubes, graphenes, and fullerenes. During the last four years, he has delivered 70 invited lectures. The accomplishments of his research group have been highlighted more than 60 times in various newspapers, media, and journals during the last five years.
