The first total synthesis of a bioactive natural product could lead to improved anti-inflammatory drugs in the future, thanks to research led by Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech). Professor Chuangchuang Li (Chemistry) led his research group to publish a paper in the high-impact academic journal, Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS) (IF […]
Natural products and their derivatives have long been the main source of innovative drugs and an important tool for biomedical research. Nearly 60% of clinically applied drugs are directly or indirectly derived from natural products. However, the source of natural products is very limited and it is difficult to meet the needs of various research. […]
Sesterterpenoids, a rare type of terpene that is produced from a variety of plants and insects, have been the source of much research around the world and play an important role in synthetic organic chemistry and drug discovery. Cerorubenic acid-III, an importance sesterterpenoid in insect communications, was first discovered from the secretions of the red […]
Recently, Li Chuang-Chuang’s Group from the Department of Chemistry of SUSTech used type II [5+2] cycloaddition, to complete the total synthesis of cyclocitrinol for the first time. Their paper was selected as the cover article for Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS). Dr. Liu Junyang was the first author of this paper andPh.D. students […]
The 10th National Organic Chemistry Academic Conference, which was hosted by SUSTech, was held in Shenzhen recently. More than 2,500 chemists from all over the country attended the event, during which Prof. Li, from the Department of Chemistry of SUSTech won the “Weishan Natural Product Synthesis Award” from the Chinese Chemical Society in recognition of […]
Recently,Prof. Li in the Department of Chemistry together with his team (http://www.ligroup.com.cn) publisheda paper named “Collective Synthesis of Humulanolides Using a Metathesis CascadeReaction” in JACS (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2014, 136, 13610), which is one of the most famous journal ofChemistry internationally. Dr. Jing-chun Han is the first author andChuang-chuang Li is the correspondent author. […]
