Transition Metal Catalyzed Transfer Hydrogenation and Co-operative Catalysis:
The borrowing hydrogen methodology associates the advantages of transfer hydrogenation with additional transformations. In this research project we have planned to focus on the unexamined field of co-operative borrowing hydrogen and organocatalytic process.
Transition Metal Free Oxidative Activation of C‑C, C‑Het and Het‑Het Bonds:
The broad objective of the research project is to develop novel strategies to activate small organic molecules by transition metal free oxidative processes. These unique approaches will lead to the efficient synthesis of several important molecular scaffolds.
Visible Light Mediated Photoredox Catalysis:
Photoredox mediated radical generation and follow-up synthetic utilization is under investigation in this project. Development of new photoredox catalysts are also a major aspect of this study.
Transition Metal Catalyzed Atom-Economic Transformations:
The objective of the project is to utilize transition metal catalyzed atom transfer processes in C‑C and C‑hetero atom bond formations. Successful implication of such processes will lead to the effective synthesis of different hetero cyclic molecules.
