We are pleased to announce that Professor Dhevalapally B. Ramachary, University of Hyderabad, has recently joined the Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry Advisory Board.
The main focus of his research group is to engineer novel and green asymmetric cascade and multi-component reactions (MCRs) to generate biologically important molecules and natural products in a single step via emerging chiral amines or amino acid-catalysis.
His research group is actively engaged in the design and synthesis of novel enzyme mimetic small organic amines and amino acids to catalyze the fundamental organic reactions in an enantioselective manner.
