Research Overview

Our research interest includes: (i) Design, synthesis and evaluation of bioactive natural products and small molecules; (ii) Bimetallic nanoclusters in enantioselective organic synthesis; and (iii) Nanocarriers for the delivery of siRNA and small molecules.

Our recent discovery of bimetallic nanocluster-mediated enantioselective oxidation of alcohols, alkanes, and alkenes along with C-C bond forming reaction has opened a new direction for the synthesis of chiral molecules. A number of biologically active small molecules have been discovered by our collaborators and my research group.
