About the Author

Dr. Lixiong Shao received his BS degree in Chemistry from Zhejiang University (2001) and PhD from Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SIOC, CAS) under the direction of Professor Min Shi (2006). Then he moved to East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST) as an Assistant Professor (2006.7-2007.12). Now he is now an Associate Professor in Wenzhou University, Zhejiang Province, where his main research interest is the design of novel N-heterocyclic carbene-metal complexes and their applications in carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds formations.

Dr. Jianmei Lu received her BS degree in Chemistry from East China Normal University (2003) and PhD from Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SIOC, CAS) under the direction of Professor Min Shi (2008). Then she moved to Wenzhou University as an Associate Professor, where her main research interest is the design of novel N-heterocyclic carbene-metal complexes and their applications in carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds formations.

Prof. Dr. Min Shi received his BS degree from Institute of Chemical Engineering of East China (now named as East China University of Science and Technology) in 1984 and PhD from Osaka University, Japan (1991). He had his postdoctoral research experience with Prof. Kenneth M. Nicholas at University of Oklahoma (1995-1996) and worked as an ERATO Researcher in Japan Science and Technology Corporation (JST) (1996-1998). He is currently a group leader in the State Key Laboratory of Organometallic Chemistry, Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SIOC, CAS), where his research interests involving the chemistry of Morita-Baylis-Hillman reaction, the chemistry of small-ring compounds such as methylenecyclopropanes and vinylidenecyclopropanes and the design of novel N-heterocyclic carbene-metal complexes derived from 1,1’-binaphthalenyl-2,2’-diamine (BINAM) and their applications in asymmetric synthesis. Prof. Min Shi is also a Professor (Changjiang Scholar) in East China University of Science and Technology.
