Hu Hongwen 胡宏纹
Organic Chemist


Hu Hongwen, male, Han nationality, is a native of Guang'an, Sichuan Province. He graduated from Centre University. Hu obtained an associate doctorate degree from Moscow State University in Russia.

Hu Hongwen is a professor at Nanjing University, devoting himself to the research of organic synthetic chemistry. He was the first to prove that, by using the paramagnetic resonance spectrum, imine oxidizing radicals decomposed from dehydrogenated aromatic oxime dimer heated in chloroform.. He also studied the additive reaction of imine oxidizing radicals and vinyl benzene-like materials/conjugated diene, as well as the substitution reaction of the radials with phenols. He was the developer of N-formoxyl formoxyl-amido sodium, a new Gabriel agent that may be used for the synthesis of primary amine, keto amine, and keto acid ester. He was the designer of the new method to synthesize middle nitrogen indene derivative by employing a 1, 3-/1, 5 dipole cyclization additive reaction of pyridine N-ylides and alkene, with the attendance of oxidizing agents. He was the first to synthesize the 1:1 and 2:2 complexes of crown ether and alkali salt and determine their crystalline structures.

Hu Hongwen was elected an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 1995.
