Zhu group focus on the development and mechanistic study of novel transition-metal-catalyzed chemical transformations and their applications in synthetic organic chemistry. We are particularly interested in the transient chemical species generated during the reaction course, such as metal carbenoids, carbon cation, o-quinondimethane (o-QDM) o-quinone methide (o-QM), et al. Currently, our group mainly focus on the following two research areas:

  •   Alkyne Chemistry

  •   Transition Metal Catalysis
