    Research Expertise: 
    Organic & Medicinal Chemistry | Organoboron Chemistry | Alternate Energy Materials

    Medicinal Chemistry: We have been developing novel aza- and bora-heterocyclic compounds and betulin-based natural product derivatives as anti-cancer agents. In collaboration with Rowan School of Osteopathic Medicine, we have also identified few Withaferin-serotonin conjugates as potential therapeutic options for the treatment of Alzheimers’ Disease.

    Value Added Chemicals from Biomass: Recent efforts in this area have included the development of new protocols for the effective conversion of biomass derived cellulosic materials into chemicals such as hydroxymethyl furfural and furan dicarboxylic acid for applications as bio-based polymers.
