Synthesis of potentially bioactive compounds and tools for biological studies.

Research focus:

  • Synthetic Bioorganic Chemistry: Syntheses of bioactive compounds (carbohydrates, isotope-labeled amino acid precursers, artificial antigens, protein-binding ligands etc.)
  • Organic Synthesis with Enzymes: Use of enzymes (aldolases, glycosidases, oxidoreductases etc.) in synthesis
  • Metal-organic chemistry in protic solvents: Tin- and Indium chemistry for carbon-carbon-bond formation in aqueous reaction media. Application in the synthesis of natural products
  • Development of new synthetic methods: Applications of ionic liquids in organic synthesis. Development of new catalysts for oxidation processes.
