Research Interests 
The core area of our research interest is Synthetic Organic Chemistry towards development of novel & new Reactions and strategies. The New Chemical entities generated are expected to exhibit important Pharmaceutical, Agrochemical and Material Applications. 
 Key Research topics are (i) Trifluoromethylation Chemistry (ii) Allenes (iii) New reactions of Propargyl Alcohols
(iv) Calcium-Catalyzed Organic Synthesis (v) Push-Pull enamines (vi) C-H Functionalization of 2-Methyl azaarenes
(vii) Cycloisomerizations/Cycloadditions/Rearrangements/ Annulations /Iodocyclizations
(viii) Asymmetric Total Synthesis of biologically important Natural Products
