Cornell spring 1

The Lin Lab is located in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University. We are an organic chemistry lab with specific research interests in electrosynthesis, asymmetric catalysis and organic materials. We will develop selective and sustainable approaches to address unsolved problems in organic and materials synthesis. Particular emphases will be placed on the rational design of catalysts and the creative use of electrochemistry that will allow for the facile and selective conversion of readily available starting materials, such as sugars, CO2 and other abundant naturally occurring feedstocks, into highly functionalized and value-added products, such as pharmaceuticals and polymers.
