Postdoctoral Research Associate

Xiao gained her PhD at the University of York, supervised by Professor Peter O’Brien. Her doctoral thesis concerned the synthesis of fragrance molecules and the asymmetric synthesis of P-stereogenic compounds using organolithium chemistry.

Xiao is currently working as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Professor Michael North’s group on “Production of Cyclic Carbonates from CO2 using Renewable Feedstock”. The aim of the project is to design and develop one-component catalysts based on aluminium(salen) or aluminium(acen) complexes which has high catalyst activity for the synthesis of cyclic carbonates from epoxides and CO2
