Current Research Topics



Research areas of interest lie upon methodology development for synthesis of biologically active compounds. This includes synthesis and utilization of chiral catalysts. Synthesis of organic materials with excellent properties for sensing, optical, and phototherapeutic applications is also within the scope. Research interests have expanded to cover areas encompassing organic chemistry and plasma technology where utilization of plasma process comes in as a method to incorporate functional properties such as flame retarding, water surfaces of choice.
