About The Section
Publishes original research articles, letters, case reports, reviews/mini-reviews and guest edited thematic issues on various topics related to Organic Synthesis. Articles may be focused largely, but not exclusively, on contributions from India.
The section Organic Synthesis of the journal Current Indian Science publishes original research articles, letters, new and improved protocols/methodologies in total synthesis, synthetic methodology in the organic chemistry or molecular design aspects of chemical biology, catalysis, supramolecular and macromolecular chemistry, mechanism-oriented physical organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry or natural products, highlights/case reports, reviews and mini-reviews on various topics related with recent developments in key fields of organic synthesis. Articles may be focused largely but not exclusively on contributions from India.
This section is not limited to a specific aspect of the field but is instead devoted to a wide range of sub-fields in the area. Articles of interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome. Submissions in the following areas are of special interest to the readers of this journal:
· Bioorganic chemistry
· Chemical biology
· Coordination Chemistry
· Crystal Engineering
· Green chemistry
· Medicinal chemistry
· Natural products
· Organic chemistry
· Organic materials
· Physical and theoretical organic chemistry
· Supramolecular chemistry
· Sustainable chemistry
· Synthetic methodology
Professor Naseem Ahmed received his Ph.D. degree in 2001 in Organic Chemistry from Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), Aligarh. He is the recipient of Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) and Canadian Breast Cancer Research Alliance (CBCRA) Fellowship (2002-2008) at the University of Sherbrooke, Canada during Postdoctoral Research. He has been the Assistant Professor of Organic and Medicinal Chemistry at the IIT Roorkee in 2008, was promoted to Associate Professor of Chemistry in 2014, and currently holds the position of Professor of Organic Chemistry and Medicinal Chemistry at IIT Roorkee since 2020.
Dr. Devalina Ray is currently employed as Assistant Professor in the Department of Biotechnology, Amity University, Noida, UP, India. She pursued B.Sc(H) in Chemistry followed by M. Sc in Organic Chemistry from Kalyani University, WB, India. In 2008, she received her Ph.D. in chemistry from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India. She has been a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Texas Medical Branch, USA, the University of Nebraska Medical Centre, USA, followed by Myongji University and Hanyang University, South Korea. Thereafter, she joined the Department of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Technology- Delhi as research associate and young scientist. Her research interests involve synthetic organic chemistry, green chemistry, medicinal and natural product chemistry and transition-metal-catalyzed C–H activation.
Dr. Gnanamani obtained his Ph.D. from Pondicherry University with Prof. C. R. Ramanathan. In June 2013, he began a postdoctoral appointment at the ICCAS, with Profs. Luo Sanzhong and Jin-Pei Cheng. In November 2014, he was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship to pursue further postdoctoral studies at Stanford University. At Stanford, he worked with Prof. Barry M. Trost group from January 2015 to March 2020 on a variety of different transition metal-catalyzed reactions. While at Stanford, he also worked with Prof. R. N. Zare, to develop methods of accelerating organic reactions in microdroplets. He joined the Department of Chemistry, IIT-Roorkee as an assistant professor in 2020.
