Welcome to the Luo Group Website

      Research in the Luo group focuses on the development of asymmetric catalytic reaction methods. Our primary research goal is to invent and develop novel enantioselective catalysts that enable transformations with fundamental synthetic interests and broad utility. We’re particularly interested in the development of viable small molecular catalysts that operate through novel activation modes using bio-inspired principles and strategies.

    Current projects include bio-inspired chiral primary aminocatalysis, asymmetric binary acid catalysis, asymmetric supramolecular catalysis and enantioselective C-C bond formation via C-C activation.

    Ultimately, we aim (1) to develop viable and reliable chiral small molecular catalysts with broad synthetic applications, (2) to utilize these catalysts and the catalytic reactions in asymmetric total synthesis of natural products, (3) to disclose the underlying catalytic mechanism and principle as well as the connections between molecular recognition/assembly and selective catalysis.
