The aim of our lab is to design and apply catalysts based on transition metals, main group elements, to realize the sustainable transformation of fossil source and biomass into value-added chemicals!  Currently, we are focusing on two directions:

1) early transition metals catalyzed the transformation of alkenes and alkanes;

2) photoredox catalysis for main group elements bonds formation
