Prof. Jie An 丨 安杰
Professor in Organic Chemistry at China Agricultural University
AJ began her research career at The University of Nottingham, carrying out her PhD studies with Dr Ross Denton from 2009 to 2013. Following the completion of her doctoral research she moved to The University of Manchester as a postdoctoral researcher. In 2015, AJ returned to China Agricultural University to begin her independent research career as an associate professor in department of applied chemistry. And she was appointed to full professor in 2019.

Welcome to the website of AJ Research Group
We are a young and dynamic research group engaged in organic synthesis.
Particularly, we are very interested in:
1) New strategies for deuterium labeling;
2) Radical and reductions;
3) Deuterium labeled bioactive compounds.

- April 2019: Our paper describing an ammonia free Birch reduction was highlighted by Organic Chemistry Portal. See: https://www.organic-chemistry.org/abstracts/lit6/375.shtm
- March 2019: Our paper describing a sodium dispersion mediated tertiary amides reduction was highlighted by Organic Chemistry Portal. See: https://www.organic-chemistry.org/abstracts/lit6/358.shtm
- Jan 2019: Our work describing a selective C-N σ bond cleavage in azetidinyl amides using Na/15-crown-5 is accepted by Molecules. Invited contribution to a special issue “Amide Bond Activation”. Congratulations to Li Hengzhao and Lai Zemin.
- Jan 2019: AJ was promoted to professor. Thank every group member for support in the previous 3 years.
- Dec 2018: 一项关于苯并咪唑类化合物合成的课题获得北京市自然科学基金面上项目资助
- Oct 2018: Our paper on the first synthesis of α,α-dideuterio amines under sodium-mediated electron transfer reactions has been selected as cover art (Journal of Organic Chemistry). Congratulations to Ding Yuxuan, Luo Shihui, Adila Adijiang and Zhao Hongye.
Reductive deuterations mediated by sodium have emerged as practical and efficient tools for the construction of valuable deuterium-labeled organic compounds. This cover art illustrates a novel method for the synthesis of α,α-dideuterio amines by the reductive deuterations of nitriles using Na/EtOD-d1. The constellations represent deuterated tryptamine and dopamine.
