From 5 to 5:20 pm, Wenbin Mao will first give a talk about "Asymmetric synthesis of chiral C-stereogenic silanes through asymmetric conjugate addition of silicon nucleophiles to unsaturated acceptors " (see abstract here). His talk will be followed by a Q/A session, as usual. Wenbin is an EC2/BIG-NSE PhD student from the WS17 batch. He is currently writing his PhD under the supervision of Martin Oestreich, and is funded by a CSC scholarship. He comes from the Jiangsu Province in China. He studied chemistry at Soochow University to accomplish his bachelor, and then continued his master education there. After the EC2/BIG-NSE initial phase at the end of 2017, he joined Martin Oestreich's group for his PhD in January 2018.
After this talk, expectedly between 5:30 and 5:50 pm, Peng-Wei Long will give a presentation with the title "B(C6F5)3-catalyzed hydrosilylation and cyclization of vinylcyclopropanes with silanes" (see abstract here) also followed by a Q/A session. Peng-Wei belongs to the WS19 batch of EC2/BIG-NSE, also writes his PhD under the supervision of Martin Oestreich, and is funded by a CSC scholarship. He did his Bachelor studies in Chemistry at the Shangluo university in the Shaanxi province. For his Master studies at the Hangzhou Normal University, he moved to Hangzhou, close to Shanghai, in the Zhejiang province. He joined Martin's group in January 2020 just after the EC2/BIG-NSE 2019 initial phase.
The EC2/BIG-NSE symposium represents a new series of scientific presentations given by our EC2/BIG-NSE PhD students (see schedule of the coming months here).
In the coming months, on several Wednesday afternoons, two students will thus give an online talk from approximately 5-6 pm (20 min presentation each + 10 mn Q/A). The symposium takes place online using Zoom. The access to the event is restricted to members of UniSysCat. The Zoom Link is sent to them a fews days prior to the meeting.
