Mainly engaged in organic synthesis and methodology research, the achievements in the direction of nanocatalysis, asymmetric catalysis, natural product synthesis, etc. have been widely concerned by the international academic community – have been reported many times by Science (2010, 328, 1208) and Chemical & Engineering News (2010, 88(20), 29); The green synthesis method of applied nano-silver catalysts was awarded the 2011 Kenneth Hancock Memorial Award by the American Chemical Society. (Student Award of US President's Green Chemistry Challenge Series, two people each year in the United States). Since 2011, he has served as an independent reviewer of more than 20 major international academic journals such as J. Am. Chem. Soc., Green Chem., J. Org. Chem., Org. Lett.
