The project aims to realise new selective and efficient alkyne cyclization strategies to the carbocyclic and
heterocyclic family of compounds, which is immensely important because of their various synthetic, biological and
materials applications. This would be demonstrated by identifying new green and sustainable synthetic methods
based on minimising and/or eliminating the consumption of various material and energy resources and chemical
waste production. The newly developed catalytic methodologies would serve as new synthetic tools that will highly
impact current thinking in organic chemistry and significantly contribute new and efficient conceptual chemical
processes to all sectors of the academic, chemical and pharmaceutical communities.
