New reactions for organic synthesis, biochemistry and materials science

About the Alabugin Group

Our group is interested in discovery of new ways to control molecular structure and reactivity. Chemistry is the most creative science – it allows one to design and synthesize molecules that would never exist if they were not conceived by the imagination of an organic chemist.

Design and discovery of new organic reactions is intrinsically multidisciplinary and provides students in the group with training for their future careers in organic, physical, analytical and biochemistry both in industry and in academia.

The art of making organic molecules plays an important role in our projects and a solid knowledge of organic synthesis is a critical foundation for every project in our group. However, equally important is the ability to test the feasibility of ideas with quantum-mechanical computations. Very often an experimental project is born from an intriguing computational prediction. On the other hand, experiments can test the limitations of theory.
