Dr. Prof. Chanjuan XI




Prof. Dr. Xi got her B.Sc. degree in 1986 at Lanzhou University. Then she joined Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences and pursued research program in Physical Chemistry. In course of her work, she earned a Master’s degree in Physical Chemistry in 1994. In 1996, she joined Hokkaido University and earned her Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences in 1999, and spent one year as a postdoctoral fellow in Catalysis Research Center, Hokkaido University. In 2000, she joined Department of Chemistry of Tsinghua University. She has involved in teaching <Physical Organic Chemistry> and <Organotransition Metal Chemistry>. Her research interests are in designing organometallic compounds and finding novel reactions for organic synthesis.
