Our Approach

we have a strong focus on synthetic organic chemistry and
the basic tool of our strategy are Multi-Component Reactions (MCRs)

Our Chemistry provides:

Diversity and Convergence
Complexity generation
Time/resourse saving
Easiness of performance
  1. Expanding the chemical space - we discover new Multi-Component reactions employing different building blocks based on their different functionalities. Our target; Novel scaffolds, libraries ready to be screened
  2. Molecule Functionalization via MCRs (1) - we offer alternative and more efficient synthetic pathways towards molecules of interest; pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals
  3. Molecule Functionalization via MCRs (2) - we target unprecedented organic materials
