Research Interest:

Research Interest: My research interest encompasses a broad areas of inorganic, organometallic and bioinorganic chemistry with special emphasis on chemical catalysis and biomimetic active-site modelling studies. The underlying theme is chemical synthesis. Judiciously engineered small molecules and metal complexes exhibit fascinating properties which otherwise are very hard to achieve and can be exploited for various academic and commercial purposes. Designing smart metal complexes that display interesting properties form the core objective of my research interest.
 Specific areas include: • Chemical Catalysis
 • Biomedical applications
 • Non-N-heterocyclic carbene chemistry
