Research Interests

The Hu group are interested in the development of new catalysts including transition metal and organic catalysts for cross-coupling reactions and addition reactions, and novel reactions/processes from readily available and cost-effective small organic molecules. These new reactions/processes and catalysts have potential applications in chemical synthesis and polymer/materials synthesis. The approach is interdisciplinary, ranging from fundamental understanding of reaction mechanisms, reaction methodology development to polymer/materials synthesis.
