Professor Chang's group studies new organic reactions and mechanisms with transition metal catalysis. Research topics in our group have ranged in the development of new useful synthetic methodologies based on transition metal chemistry, synthesis of biologically important products, organic catalysis, chirality amplification and molecular mechanics based on molecular assembly. Research goals include transition metal catalyzed C–H bond functionalization for the carbon–carbon bond and carbon–heteroatom bond formation, development of useful catalytic organic transformations, methane activation and catalytic de-functionalization.
