About Us

Welcome to the Ramachandran Research Group, where new reagents, reactions, and methodologies in organoboron and fluoroorganic chemistry are continually developed and applied for novel syntheses of natural and unnatural molecules. We are the proud successors of Purdue University’s rich and pioneering legacy in boron chemistry that was initiated by Professor Ramachandran’s mentor and Nobel laureate Professor Herbert C. Brown. For an overview of our current research projects see the research links above.

We apply our knowledge to develop alternative energy and highly energetic materials for civilian and military applications.

Preliminary screening of several of our molecules has led to the identification of hits with potential anti-microbial activities against c. diff. and MRSA. The properties of these molecules are currently being refined to achieve a maximal desirable profile of the lead candidate.
