研究方向

1. 光氧化还原技术

光敏电子转移催化剂为自由基中间体提供了独特的化学合成途径、拓宽了自由基中间体的应用范围以及为小分子催化领域提供了新的合成方法。该方法的优势在于温和的反应条件下,具有敏感官能团的化合物能发生化学选择性反应得到新化学分子。Stephenson课题组创造性地设计和应用自由基反应1-9促进不可持续反应的发生,从而推动光氧化还原催化领域的发展(图 1)。

2. 复杂分子的合成

Stephenson课题组的研究重点是创造性的实现自由基中间体向复杂的生物活性分子的转化,同时致力于有机化学可持续性和可扩展性。目前,Stephenson课题组致力于应用光氧化还原催化,电化学和仿生持久性产生自由基前体10的策略来获得天然产物和与临床相关的骨架,且已经取得了不错的进展11-18。这些方法在战略层面上的优势以及课题组与行业的牢固联系为大规模合成天然产物提供了独特的机会19(图 2)。

3. 生物质降解

生物质(尤其是木质素)可用于合成有用的商业化学品以及燃料,具有重要的合成价值。Stephenson课题组致力于应用光和电化学的氧化还原催化来开发实用和可扩展的技术20并在温和有效的条件下促进生物质降解,为我们的美好生活提供有用的商业化学品。同时,Stephenson教授相信生物质降解领域的不断发展将为获取碳原料提供一种新的途径,从而降低化石燃料对环境的影响(图 3)。
