Prof. Carsten Bolm Visited Our Lab

Mr. Carsten Bolm, Professor of Institut für Organische Chemie RWTH Aachen University of Germany, associate editor for Journal of Organic Chemistry visited our lab, and  was invited to give two reports entitled with “TM(Transition Metal) or no TM – that is the question & How to write a chemistry paper (in English)” in May 30, 2013. After the seminar, he had a deep discussion and exchange with Prof. Aiwen and students.

 

 

 

Prof. Chen-Ho Tung Visited Our Lab


Prof. Chen-Ho Tung (佟振合), academician of Chinese Academy of Science, Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, CAS ,visited our lab in May 27.During this period, he gave a wonderful lecture to all  the staffs and students in the College of Chemistry and Molecular Science,entitled with “photoinduced energy transfer, electron transfer and chemical conversion in Supramolecular system “. After the lecture he also had a detailed discussion with Prof. Lei and the students about 爏upramolecular application in organic synthesis ,Specifically in Chiral induction.

Prof. Huanfeng Jiang and Prof. Lei Liu Visited Our Lab

Dr. Huanfeng Jiang, Professor of South China University of Technology (SCUT), and Dr. Lei Liu, professor of Tsinghua University (THU), visited our lab between May 25th and 27th. During this period, both of them gave us two wonderful lectures about their recent advances in scientific research. Prof. Huanfeng Jiang introduced the recent progress of transition-metal catalyzed aerobic oxidation of alkenes and alkynes by molecular oxygen in their groups. Meanwhile, Prof. Lei Liu gave us a presentation about their recent progress on methodology works of transition-metal catalyzed cross-coupling reactions and their initial explorations on protein synthesis. After the lecture, students learned a lot from the two professors about how to think and conduct our scientific researches. They also had a detailed discussion with Prof. Lei and the students about some mechanistic investigations on coupling reactions after the lecture.

本网讯(记者付晓歌)5月3日,2013年“湖北青年五四奖章”揭晓,武汉大学化学与分子科学学院教授雷爱文获此殊荣。

从美国宾州州立大学到斯坦福大学,博士后期间的十几篇高水平论文已让雷爱文在金属有机领域占据了一席之地。2005年秋,他放弃海外优越的科研环境来到武汉大学,在有限的条件下,建立起绿色催化研究所,培养了大量优秀毕业生。

雷爱文在金属有机动力学研究中成果突出,他在国际上首次明确提出了“氧化偶联”概念,在《美国化学会志》、《德国应用化学》等国际顶级化学杂志上连续发表30多篇论文,并受邀在国际化学界影响力最大的综述杂志《化学综述》(《Chemical Review》)上发文。曾获药明康德生命化学研究奖、中国化学会-约翰威立出版公司青年化学论文奖、Thieme化学期刊奖、英国皇家化学会青年科学家奖、中美教授会杰出教授奖、新加坡“亚洲杰出青年科学家大会”讲座奖、日本“亚洲杰出青年科学家大会”讲座奖、美国礼来公司杰出化学奖、湖北省自然科学一等奖等荣誉。他还是国家杰出青年基金获得者、湖北省高端人才引领计划首批入选者。

据悉,本次评选由共青团湖北省委、湖北省委组织部、省人力资源和社会保障厅、省青年联合会组织,30名优秀青年被授予“湖北青年五四奖章”。
