Title: Gold Photoredox catalysis in Organic Synthesis

Jin Xie

Heidelberg University, Germany


Jin Xie was born in Chongqing, China, in 1985. He received his Bachelor degree from Northeast Forestry University in 2008, and a PhD degree in 2013 from Nanjing University working under the direction of Prof. Chengjian Zhu. Since 2014, he is working as a postdoctoral research associate in the group of Prof. A. S. K. Hashmi at Heidelberg University. His current research interest lies in radical chemistry and organometallic chemistry.


The gold photocatalysis features some intrinsic and unique catalytic character of gold pedigree. When gold meets photocatalysis, the valence change of gold center can be easily achieved via electron transfer and radical addition while avoiding the use of stoichiometric sacrificial external oxidants. The excellent compatibility of radicals with gold catalysts unlocks a powerful paradigm for a series of important organic transformations, including redox-neutral C-C coupling, C-H activation and radical-radical cross-coupling. The photocatalysis with gold complexes complements the existing photoredox catalysis strategies.
