Services & Duties

Editorial Board of Heterocyclic Communication

Editorial Board of Scientific Reports

Editorial Board of Natural Product against Cancer

Research Interests:

We hope to develop some green and efficient synthetic methodologies for the synthesis of heterocycles, bioactive molecules and potential drugs by the strategies of radical reactions, the activation of inert chemical bonds, and highly selective reaction design.


1) Aerobic Oxidation & Oxygenation, Nitrogenation and Halogenation;

2) Small solvent molecules activation;

3) The discovery of new drugs for the treatment of metabolic syndrome;

4) Photodynamic Therapy.
