Personal Profile

Jin was born in Chongqing, China, in 1985. He received his Bachelor degree from Northeast Forestry University in 2008. In the same year, he went to Nanjing University and obtained his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry in 2013 under the direction of Prof. Chengjian Zhu. After a short stay in the same group, he worked as a postdoctoral research associate in the group of Prof. A. Stephen K. Hashmi at Heidelberg University since 2014. In July 2017, Jin was awarded Nanjing University Dengfeng Talents Plan and joined School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at NJU as an associate professor to start his independent career.

Own group aims to construct molecular structure and discover their reactivity that can contribute to  interdisciplinary solutions for the important challenges in science. We have a fundamental interest in developing innovative synthetic strategies for potential applications. Particularly, we focus on efficient & green synthetic methodology development, complex molecule synthesis, and mechanistic studies to develop practical access to molecules of interest in catalysis, medicine, and organic materials. Currently, we are interested in developing synergistic catalysis effect in organic synthesis. It represents a rationally design innovative catalytic solutions to improve our access to molecular sciences.
