The research in Liu group is focus on 3d-metal catalysis, particularly the transition metal catalyst based on tridentate ligands. The research area includes the development of new sustainable synthetic methodologies, highly efficient catalytic system for (transfer) hydrogenation and dehydorgenative coupling. Furthermore, we are highly interested in developing efficient catalytic processes for the depolymerisation of plastic waste, such as polyesters, polyamides, polycarbonates and polyureas.
