Research of the OSA-group is devoted to organic synthesis and analysis

Group members have high expertise in:

  • Natural products chemistry, especially phytochemistry: isolation of pure compounds from complex natural mixtures; structural elucidation (NMR, IR, MS) of natural products; synthesis and chemical transformations of natural products; biological/pharmacological activity of natural products;
  • Organometallic compounds: chemistry of ferrocene, mainly synthesis of its derivatives and structure/property activity studies;
  • Chemometrics, primarily oriented toward the development of new types of GC-MS, NMR and IR-derived variables, suitable for fast and reliable comparison/characterization of complex mixtures of organic compounds;
  • Determination of wide panel pharmacological/toxicological/biological properties of natural products and synthetic compounds.
