Professor Wang Congyang's "Manganese Group Metal Organocatalysis" Lecture

On the afternoon of March 16, 2022, researcher Wang Congyang from the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences was invited by Professor Huang Hui from the School of Materials Science and Optoelectronic Technology to give a lecture on "manganese group metal organocatalysis" at 2-329.


        In his report, Professor Wang Congyang mainly introduced a series of progress made by his research group in the catalytic C-H bond functionalization of manganese group metals (especially manganese metal complexes), including manganese-catalyzed enyne addition reaction, manganese-catalyzed polar Addition reactions, manganese-catalyzed hydrogen transfer reactions, etc. In view of the particularity of manganese group metal complexes, Prof. Wang Congyang's research group developed catalytic strategies such as manganese acid synergistic catalysis and manganese base synergistic catalysis, which successfully solved the transformation of manganese group metals from stoichiometric catalysis to catalytic quantity catalysis. At the same time, a series of C-H bonds on aromatic rings were successfully functionalized and modified, and the functional groups were well tolerated.
