Chemistry of Natural Products

Motivation, Vision and Aim:

The Organic Chemistry group focuses on isolation and semisynthesis of pharmaceuticals from natural resources and corresponding transformation reactions. Topics include:

Heterogeneous oxidation of organic compounds

Synthesis and mechanisms of organic compounds

Analytical pyrolises of coals quantitatively and qualitatively as possible substitute of petroleum

Marine biotechnology and biochemistry 

  • Isolation, purification and characterization of novel pharmaceuticals from marine sources
  • Novel modulators of cancer-associated potassium channels
  • Characterization of extracts and isolated compounds from the coral sarcophyton glaucum on glycine receptors and potassium channels
  • Isolation and characterization of novel biomedically active substances from marine organisms
