Assistant Professor                                                                            Chemistry and Biochemistry

Auburn University

UT Host: Dr. Viktor Nemykin

Title: Enantioselective C-C Bond Formation via Asymmetric Catalysis

Abstract: The seminar will focus on the development of enantioselective carbon-carbon bond formation reactions using asymmetric catalysis. Applications in the context of complex molecule synthesis will also be discussed.

Bio: Ming Chen obtained his Bachelor degree from Nanjing University and Master degree from Brown University. He completed his Ph.D. studies at the Scripps Research Institute under the supervision of Professor William Roush. Then he moved to University of California, Berkeley and conducted his postdoctoral studies in the laboratory of Professor John Hartwig. He started his independent career in 2016 at Auburn University. His research interests mainly focus on asymmetric catalysis and complex molecule synthesis.
