Education and Work Experience
    Aiming at the selectivity and efficiency of asymmetric catalytic reaction, Prof. Ding established a "combined asymmetric catalysis" method, developed a series of high-efficiency and high-selective chiral catalysts and elucidated their catalytic mechanism. He proposed the concept of
    chiral catalyst "self-loading", achieving heterogeneous catalysis of many types of reactions such as asymmetric hydrogenation and recycling of catalysts; developed novel chiral ligands and catalysts with special armature, providing an efficient method for synthesis of many types of non-natural amino acid derivatives and pharmaceutical intermediates.
