Research Area: Synthetic Organic Chemistry

My present research interests:
Syntheses of Bioactive Molecules:

  • Designing new synthetic strategies for the syntheses of antimalarial, anticancer, sugar mimics and other biologically important molecules.
  • Syntheses of analogous carbo- and heterocyclic frame works of sesquiterpenoids and alkaloids.
  • Synthesis of rigid unnatural amino acids & peptides and their chemistry
Synthetic Methodology:
  • New strategies of metal-mediated and -catalyzed enantioselective/stereoselective construction of sequential stereogenic centers and C-C bond forming reactions.
  • Creation of new generation materials based on organic molecules, transition metal complexes, Lewis acids or solid metallic entities for vital catalytic applications.
  • Transition metal-based catalytic C-C coupling reactions
  • Green/sustainable chemistry
  • Photo-physical aspects of organic molecules
