Heterogeneous asymmetric catalysis
The porous organic-inorganic hybrid materials (OIHMs) with distinctive nanostructure and versatile functionality have attracted much attention because of their wide application potentials, especially in the field of catalysis. The research activities of our group are mainly focused on the designed synthesis of OIHMs with versatile functional groups and nanostructures and the application of OIHMs in catalytic production of chemicals.
