Biography:

Dr. Chaozhong Li got his B.S at Department of Applied Chemistry, University of Science and Technology of China in 1988. In 1993, he obtained his Ph.D at Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry. He did his postdoctoral research at Department of Chemistry, Iowa State University, Ames, IA, USA during 1994 to 1998. In 1999, he joined Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry and was promoted as professor and principle investigator in 2000. Now he is also Special-term professor of Shanghai Tech University, Ph.D supervisor (part-time) of University of Science and Technology of China, and professor (part-time) of Central China Normal University. His honors and awards include: “Hundreds of Talent” Recipient, Chinese Academy of Sciences (1999); “Outstanding Youth Fund” Recipient, National Natural Science Foundation of China (2003); “Outstanding Hundreds of Talent” Recipient, Chinese Academy of Sciences (2003); The State Government Special Subsidy (2006); “Shanghai Leading Talent” Award (2010); He was selected as the leader of the innovation team in the key fields of the Ministry of Science and Technology (2019), and as the leader of the scientific and technological innovation of the National Ten Thousand Talents Program (2020).

Abstract:

Organofluorine compounds have found widespread applications in pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and materials science. Selective introduction of fluorine atoms or fluoroalkyl groups (such as trifluoromethyl groups) into organic molecules is a key research area of organofluorine chemistry. However, traditional methods are typically limited to nucleophilic or electrophilic fluorination (or trifluoromethylation) or CF3 radical addition to unsaturated moieties. Pioneered by the Li group, the merging of free radical chemistry with organofluorine chemistry has enabled the successful development of radical fluorination and trifluoromethylation strategies, which is now a hot topic in organic chemistry.
