Group of Asymmetric Synthesis

The research program in our laboratory is focused on the development of new synthetic methods for the preparation of enantiomerically pure compounds from simple and readily available starting materials using catalysis by small organic molecules. Our aim is not only to develop new methods but also application of our developed protocols for the preparation of biologically active substances.


Areas of our interest: 

1) Enantioselective functionalization of carbonyl compounds.

2) Enantioselective synthesis of cyclic and heterocyclic compounds.

3) Organocatalytic formation of C-C bonds and study of tandem reactions leading to multiple C-C bond formation.

4) Development and synthesis of new bifunctional organic catalysts and their application.
