DING Kuiling, Executive Vice President of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, is a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). Prof. Ding’s major research area includes asymmetric catalysis and green chemistry based on organometallics. He proposed and successfully practiced the combinatorial approach for chiral catalyst discovery and self-supporting strategy for chiral catalyst immobilization, respectively. He also developed several chiral phosphine ligands including DpenPhos, SpinPhox and SKP, some of which have been commercialized by chemical companies and widely used by academic peers. The new processes he developed for catalytic asymmetric synthesis of chiral drug intermediates and transformation of CO2 to DMF have been implemented by industries. He serves the board or advisory board of more than ten international journals in chemistry including Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. and Acc. Chem. Res.. He is also associate editor of Acta Chimica Sinica and Org. Lett., editor-in-chief of Chinese J. Org. Chem., co-chairman of Chem. Eur. J., and a member of the advisory board of IUPAC International Symposium on Organometallic Chemistry Directed Towards Organic Synthesis (OMCOS) and International Conference on Organometallics and Catalysis (OM&Cat). He received National Natural Science Award (second prize) of China, Shanghai Natural Science Award (first prize), Shanghai Natural Science Peony Award, Shanghai Scientific Elite, Eli Lilly Scientific Excellence Award in Chemistry, CCS Huang Yaozeng Organometallic Chemistry Award, CCS Chiral Chemistry Award, Yoshida Prize of International Organic Chemistry Foundation (IOCF) in Japan, Humboldt Research Award, as well as the honors of National Excellent Scientist, and so on.
