Prof. Hu Wenhao's project wins the first priz.
FOUR projects with ECNU as the leading developer won prizes of the 2016 Shanghai Science & Technology Award, the city’s top science award, at a high-profile ceremony held to honor distinguished scientists and research achievements on March 22.
A project, titled Research on Novel Multicomponent Reaction via Reactive Intermediates, accomplished by a research team led by Prof. Hu Wenhao with the
Prof. Hu Wenhao.
Novel reaction of organic chemistry is a strong tool for creating new substances. A multicomponent reaction could form multiple chemical bonds and is one of the most desirable green, atomic economic reactions.
The prize-winning project spells out the effectiveness, wide application and practicability of the strategy of discovering novel reactions via reactive intermediates, providing a new method for innovative drug research.
The other three prizewinners from ECNU were projects by the State Key Lab of Estuarine and Coastal Research, School of Computer Science & Software Engineering, and
