Areas of current Interest, Research Activities, and Future Plans of Academic and Research activities:

       Presently, the Research work is going on in the area of Synthesis and Characterization of Macrocyclic Transition metal complexes with various types of ligands and as an outcome EIGHT Research Students got their Ph. D. Degree and ONE is currently working for his Ph. D. Degree. In future, I am looking forward to extend this work of the Macrocyclic Chemistry towards the Alkaline earth metals and inner transition metals. The possibilities of collaborations with other Institutes like IITs, IISERs, NCL,Pune and other R & D Laboratories will also be explored.
