Welcome to the Natural Products Laboratory
Chemical Synthesis is uniquely positioned at the heart of Chemistry, the Central Science, and its impact on our lives and society is all Pervasive.
~Elias James Corey
Our dynamic research group, based at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research in Thiruvananthapuram, is dedicated to advancing the frontiers of organic chemistry with a particular focus on natural product research. Since our inception in 2016, we have been actively engaged in the multistep synthesis of natural products, and their analogs, the exploration and enhancement of new methodologies, and advancements in organo-catalysis.
Equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, our laboratory is fully established to facilitate cutting-edge research in the field. Our team comprises highly motivated, talented, and enthusiastic students who thrive on tackling the intricate challenges of organic chemistry. Together, we are committed to pushing the boundaries of knowledge and contributing to the scientific community's understanding of organic small molecules.
