Research Activity

The group is interested in all aspects of STEREOSELECTIVE SYNTHESIS. Major efforts are dedicated to the development of novel synthetic methodologies and their application to the synthesis of chiral products of pharmaceutical interest and, in general, of biologically active compounds. The design, discovery and study of chiral organocatalysts is a central topic of our group ...read more
