In this case, the client that we had the pleasure of working with was a Postdoctoral Research Fellowfrom China in the field of Chemistry.  His specialized research has focused on developing novel methods for processes such as direct amination of aromatic C-H bonds, palladium-catalyzed direct arylation, and photoinduced copper-catalyzed cross coupling reactions. His work had resulted in at least 8 peer-reviewed scientific articles and numerous presentations at national and international conferences. At the time that his case was filed, his publications had been cited at least 331 times by researchers around the world, serving as apparent and objective evidence of his major influence and impact on the field of endeavor, in addition to his sustained international acclaim. He had also conducted 26 manuscript reviews for at least 5 distinctive, internationally circulated journals. His superior level of expertise was confirmed in the following quote from a recommender, [Client]’s innovative study afforded the scientific community a novel method to circumnavigate the negative impact of aromatic amine productionFurthermore, [client]’s method represents the first instance in which conversion of C-H to C-N has been activated by the cleavage of N-O bonds in the substrate. This discovery proved to be important, as other leaders in the field began to copy [his] approach.” It was our goal to prove that our client qualified for classification as an Alien of Extraordinary Ability given that he sought to remain in the United States to continue work in the area of Chemistry, and that his continued research would substantially and prospectively benefit the United States.
