Chemical and Biological Crystallography

  • Chemical and Biological Crystallography Laboratory

Chemical and Biological Crystallography Laboratory focuses on the following research areas:

  1. Synthesis and physico-chemical characterizations of organic molecules and their detailed structural investigations for the discovery of novel multifunctional materials: NLO, ferroelectric, semiconductor, optoelectronic etc.
  2. Visible light induced catalyst/sensitizer-free photodimerization of olefins
  3. Structure property relationship and polymorphic investigation of organic optical materials in “push-pull” chromophores
  4. Quantitative studies of hydrogen bonding and electrostatic interaction energies via protein charge density analysis
  5. Charge density analysis for drug design
  6. Protein and quantum crystallography
