FLP system" in Balitai campus, Nankai University, bringing a wonderful
academic report to teachers and students. The seminar was presided over by
Professor Cui Chunming, laboratory director of the State Key Laboratory of
Elemento-organic Chemistry( Nankai University).
In the lecture, Professor Stephen
introduced the concept of Frustrated Lewis Pair (hereinafter referred to as
"FLP"), citing the research results in the field of FLP in recent
years, including the reduction reaction of FLP participation, the activation
reaction of small molecules and the related mechanisms. Then, they introduced the
new FLP catalysts their group recently developed and the prospect of FLP
Finding and reporting the first compound
with FLP properties, proposing the concept of FLP, Professor Douglas W. Stephan
is the founder of FLP Chemistry. He was invited to publish review articles in
journals like Science, J. Am Chem.
Soc. Angew.Chem.Int. Ed, with over 90
