Other

  • Research interest is focused on two broad areas of Chemistry viz: Bio-inorganic Synthetic Chemistry and Computational/Theoretical Chemistry. We synthesize Schiff-Base Ligands and their Complexes derived from amino acids that could mimic biological molecules with applications in industrial catalysis and biological activities
