The use of small chiral organic molecules as catalytically active species to carry out a reaction (often in enantioselective way) is called ‘Organocatalysis’. Organocatalysis has contributed greatly in the area of asymmetric organic synthesis in the last decade. At present, asymmetric organocatalysis is known as an independent synthetic strategy along with asymmetric metal-based catalysis and enzymatic catalysis for the synthesis of enantio-enrich organic molecules.

Our current research is focused on the design of new organocatalytic methods/reactions using enamine-iminium ion-H bond and & bifunctional catalysts.
