About the Research

Research Theme

Explore new types of radical reactions after calculations


Radical chemistry, photocatalysis, computational chemistry

Research Outline

In my PhD period, I mainly focused on the methodology of organocatalysis. At the same time, my research project also contained the design and synthesis of new substrates applied for metal catalysis and organocatalysis. Now, my research interest is in developing new photocatalyzed reactions after DFT calculation.
