The research interests of 'The AB Research Group' are the following:

  • Development of novel methodologies for C-C and C-hetero bond-forming reactions
  • Synthesis of important naturally ocurring heterocyclic compounds
  • Total syntheses of architecturally complex natural products
  • Chemical Biology


The research focus of AB group include the total synthesis of architecturally interesting biologically active natural products that provide an ideal platform for the development of new strategies and highly selective organic transformations. Following are some Natural products of intrest to our group:
