(Synthetic Methods for Organic Synthesis, Asymmetric Catalysis, and C–H Activation/Functionalization)
Development of New Synthetic Strategies
- The discovery and development of new synthetic methods
- Developing new strategies to synthesize various fluorine-containing molecules by incorporation of a fluorine atom or by replacement of the C–H bond with C–F bond.
- The use of less reactive/acidic pronucleophiles for the construction of various C–C and C–X bonds.
- The development of synthetic strategies to synthesize functionalized heterocycles.
- Asymmetric catalysis using a binary catalytic system comprising a chiral Lewis acid and a Brønsted base.
- Asymmetric catalysis promoted by the chiral organocatalyst.
- Total synthesis of molecules having biological and pharmaceutical significance and also streamlining the synthetic routes for the drug molecules in shorter synthetic steps.
