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 chemistry.

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 patents and more than 470 papers, cited 27,000 times (H-index 83). Professor Stephen also serves as editor-in-chief of Chem. Soc.rev. (impact factor: 40.182)

Professor Stephen also visited the state Key laboratory of Elemento-Organic Chemistry and held talks with some experts and scholars from the College of Chemistry of our university and the State Key Laboratory of Elemento-organic Chemistry.
