In the present scenario, the field of modern organic synthesis can be divided into two main pillars- development of sustainable methods and application of these methods for the synthesis of natural products. These natural products not only display fascinating complex molecular architecture that nature has produced but also they are extremely important in the medicinal industries as well as other fields.


Our research group investigates to solve the fundamental problems of discovering more efficient methods based on two fundamental approaches - one-pot multi catalysis and selective C-H functionalization. We hope our work will further enhance the knowledge in this field which will ultimately lead to the advancement of a broad field ranging from medicinal chemistry to material science.



  • Dual/Synergistic Catalysis

  • C-H-Bond Functionalization

  • Chemistry of Carbazoles

  • Organic Photovoltaics
