About the Research

Research Theme

Organometallic chemistry, design new chiral ligands and new chemical reactions


Transition metal, asymmetric catalysis, SOP ligands
Research Outline

In the past, I mainly focused on the research of carbonyl chemistry, with the purpose of solving problems that were not solved by the previous ones. At the same time, I am also committed to the development of transition metal/SOP ligand catalytic systems and the design of new chiral ligands. Now I am concerned about how to synthesize chiral silicon compounds.
