Joint Symposium on Chemistry Frontiers: Chemical Science Hot Articles In Organic Synthesis


This symposium is a joint event between Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany. Together, we feature some hot articles in Organic Synthesis from Chemical Science (Impact Factor 9.825), the flagship journal of RSC. As a special one-time event of the Chemistry Webinar Series, we have invited three prestigious professors to deep-dive into their research featured in Chemical Science journal. We are also honored to have the Executive Editor of Chemical Science journal as a guest at this event.

During this symposium, you will:

  1. Hear directly from the authors of these hot articles, surrounding the topics of: DNA-Encoded Library (DEL), Total Synthesis and Catalysis
  2. Connect with editorial members of Chemical Science to learn the vision and get exclusive insights into the journal

Prof. Xiaoming Feng, Ph.D.

Sichuan University, China

Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences

Prof. Xiaoming Feng received his B.S. in 1985 and M.S. in 1988 from Lanzhou University. Then, he worked at Southwest Normal University (1988−1993) and became an associate professor in 1991. In 1996, he received his Ph.D. from the Institute of Chemistry, CAS. He went to the Chengdu Institute of Organic Chemistry, CAS (1996−2000) and was appointed professor in 1997. He did postdoctoral research at Colorado State University (1998-1999) with Prof. Yian Shi. In 2000, he moved to Sichuan University. He was selected as an Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2013. He focuses on the design of chiral catalysts, the development of new synthetic methods, and the synthesis of bioactive compounds. He received numerous awards and honors including the Physical Science Prize of Future Science Prize in 2018; Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation Prize for Scientific and Technological Progress in 2019; the Tan Kah Kee Science Awards, Outstanding Teaching Award in 2020.

Prof. Ning Jiao, Ph.D.
