Welcome to the Research Group of Dr. Rajesh Gonnade

Dr. Gonnade's research group specilizes in the field of crystal engineering and supramolecular chemistry. They exploit the understanding of the intermolecular interactions in designing the materials of desired properties. Currently, his research group is actively involved in the drug polymorphism (polymorph screening), crystal engineering of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) to developed various novel solid phases (cocrystals, salts, eutectics, hydrates, solvates, etc.) with improved physicochemical and biopharmaceutical properties to make better-quality medicines. Further, his research group works on the polymorph and cocrystal screening of fluorescent organic scaffolds to have tailor-made control on the luminescence properties of these materials to achieve multi-color emissions to evolve novel organic fluorescent materials. Additionally, his research group is involved in investigating reactions in molecular crystals and their correlation using crystal structure analysis (structure-property correlations).
