Welcome to the Tao XU group @Tongji University!
Our research group was established in 2017. We, working to create value through innovation, focus on the development of new synthetic methods and their application to the synthesis of organic molecules. Efforts are taken to develop operationally useful chemistry that would be easy to handle and would offer potential utility in academia and industry. We are also committed to the principles of sustainable development with the utilization of green catalysts, such as light, as the basis to overcome the major challenges presented by environmental requirements. We hope that you will enjoy our work and your valuable advice or suggestions will be much appreciated and welcomed by sending emails to email@example.com.
【April】Congratulations to Xinxuan Li for winning Shanghai Outstanding Graduate Student Award 2023.
【March】A facile protocol to access chiral α-alkynyl phosphonates was developed via dual nickel/photoredox catalysis and has been published in Angew. Chem., Int. Ed.
【January】We reported an enantioselective C(sp3)-C(sp3) reductive cross-coupling of alkyl halides with α-chloroboronates under dual nickel/photoredox catalysis system in J. Am. Chem. Soc.
【December】We published a deoxygenative haloboration and enantioselective chloroboration of carbonyls in J. Am. Chem. Soc.
