dian Institute of Technology, Indore, located in Madhya Pradesh, is an institute of national importance established by the Government of India in 2009

Job Title – Postdoctoral Scientist

No.of.Posts – ONE

Project Title – “Visible-Light Mediated Direct Functionalization of Heteroaromatic Compounds through C-H Activation”

Brief Description of Project

The objectives that we intend to pursue will focus on the development of new modes of visible light-mediated photocatalytic (either metal or metal-free) reactive system which will be applicable for the synthesis of a wide range of functionalized heterocycles from easily available raw materials. Moreover, applied to drug synthesis, the power of photocatalysis lies in its ability to provide unique synthetic disconnections, offering more efficient routes or access to alternative substrates in a practical manner. Finally, synthesized compounds will be thoroughly screened for their biological activities to discover molecules with useful anti-cancer properties.

Duration – The appointment is for one year.
