2017年11月22日上午，应四川大学化学学院邀请，爱丁堡大学Dr. Schneider访问我院，并在化学馆321报告厅进行了以“Catalysis for challenging C–H Bond activation”为题的学术报告，主要介绍了其研究小组在烯丙基Csp3-H键活化和吲哚选择性2位官能团化的工作。Schneider教授在报告过程中语言幽默风趣，讲解深入浅出，激起了在座老师和同学的浓厚兴趣。报告结束后Schneider教授与现场师生进行了深入交流，现场学术氛围浓郁。
Dr. Uwe Schneider was born in Würzburg, Germany, and studied Chemistry in Germany and France. He received a PhD degree at IRCOF, France, with Professors Quirion and Pannecoucke [late 2003], before moving to the University of Tokyo, Japan, for postdoctoral research with Professor Kobayashi [early 2004]. He was an Assistant Professor at the University of Tokyo [2007–2011];[Tenure: 2009],before taking up a Lecturer position at the University of Edinburgh, UK [late 2011]. His research interests are focused on the development of sustainable organic synthesis including: exploitation of main group metals and non-metals in their unusual low-oxidation/valence states for base, acid, dual, ambiphilic, FLP, and/or transition metal-like redox catalysis;challenging C–H bond activation using metal–base and/or base catalysis;catalytic strong bond activation in small molecules.
