The latest research progress of chiral synthesis and current problems were introduced in plain and easy-to-understand language, and the students in the audience listened with gusto. The students said that listening to Dean Zhu’s lecture broadened their horizons, increased their knowledge, and stimulated their interest in chemistry.
This lecture is the first lecture in the "Going Out" series of Nankai University College of Chemistry 100th Anniversary Lecture. In the coming year, more teachers from College of Chemistry, Nankai University will go out of the campus to introduce and popularize chemical knowledge to the society and exchange their experiences in scientific research work. Please look forward to it!
