Liangbing Fu successfully defended his thesis, “Expanding the Scope of Reactions and Applications of Donor/Acceptor Rhodium(II)-carbenes” on Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016. Liangbing’s thesis committed was led by Huw Davies with Simon Blakey and Lanny Liebeskind as additional members.
Earlier this year, Liangbing received the Quayle Advanced/Senior Student Award. During his time at Emory, he published four first-author papers, among others. His first author paper in JACS expanded the scope pf Donor/Acceptor carbene C-H insertion reactions to include relatively electron-deficient substrates.
Liangbing is currently a postdoctoral scholar at Georgia Tech.
