Wu Jie's Biography

Wu Jie, Assistant Professor, Chemistry Department, National University of Singapore

Jie Wu was born and raised in Sichuan Province, China. He received Ph.D. in organic chemistry at Boston University in 2012, under the supervision of Prof. James S. Panek. He was appointed as SkolTech Postdoc Fellow with Prof. Timothy F. Jamison and Prof. T. Alan Hatton at MIT from 2012-2014. After working as a senior scientist in Snapdragon Chemistry Inc, he joined the chemistry department of NUS as an assistant professor in 2015. He has been a recipient of Thieme Chemistry Journal Award (2019), NUS chemistry department Young Chemist Award (2018), 4th Green&Sustainable Manufacturing Award from GSK-Singapore (2017), and Asian Core Program Lectureship Award from China (2017), Taiwan (2018), and Thailand (2018). His research interests include the continuous-flow synthesis, photo-synthesis, and green chemistry.

Compared to stepwise batch synthesis, multistep continuous flow synthesis enables the combination of multiple synthetic steps into a single and uninterrupted reactor network, thereby circumventing the need to isolate intermediates, and enabling automated synthesis. However, despite many advantages and much progress in end-to-end API continuous-flow synthesis, several hurdles still need to be overcome. For instance, solvent and reagent incompatibility between individual steps, build-up pressure of reactors, substrate dispersion, and requirement of regeneration of reagent and scavenger columns. I this talk, I will present our recent progresses in this research field, which enables a novel automated API synthesis platform.
