About Me

We work in the field of organic crystal chemistry which covers the wide area in solid state chemistry ranging from polymorphism, structural phase transition, organic solid state reactions to crystal engineering and investigate the same extensively using single crystal X-ray crystallography. We also used the principles of crystal engineering by exploiting various intermolecular interactions to construct the desired molecular packing organic of racemic compound required for their enantiomeric resolution by crystallization (preferential enrichment).
