Research Overview

          The research in the Lin Lab lies in the broadly defined area of organic chemistry, with specific interests in electrosynthesis, asymmetric catalysis and organic materials. We will develop interdisciplinary approaches to address unsolved problems in organic synthesis and sustainable chemistry. Ongoing projects include: 1) combining catalysis and electrochemistry for the facile and selective conversion of readily available starting materials and abundant chemical feedstocks into highly functionalized and value-added products, such as pharmaceuticals and fuels; 2) rational design and synthesis of two-dimension organic materials with novel structures and tunable functionalities.
