Research Overview

Our research interest includes: (i) bimetallic nanoclusters in catalytic asymmetric oxidation reactions for organic synthesis; (ii) development of electronic biosensors in the profiling of overexpressed proteases for early detection of triple-negative breast cancer; and (iii) synthesis, mechanistic study and bio-evaluation of anti-Alzheimer molecules.

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