Palladium and copper assisted selective C-H functionalizations: The concept of chelation assistance by directing groups in catalytic functionalization of C-H bonds has emerged as a powerful tool in organic synthesis. We are focused towards atom economic conversion of C-H bonds into carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bonds using palladium and copper based catalytic systems.
Use of iodine and hypervalent iodine reagents in organic synthesis.
Homogeneous and heterogeneous nanocatalysis.
Development of new synthetic methods, strategies and concepts in organic synthesis.
