Our research interests concern the fields of organic synthesis, organometallic chemistry, and asymmetric catalysis.

Our goals are: 

  • Design of new catalytic processes for the construction of C-C and of C-X bonds with an emphasis on the stereo- and enantioselectivity.
  • Synthesis of inexpensive and environmentally friendly metal complexes and organocatalysts. 
  • Heterogeneous catalysis using metal-organic frameworks ( 
  • Mechanistic studies.
  • Application of the methodology to the total synthesis of biologically active compounds.
